J-List genuinely wants to help people around the world learn about Japan through its wonderful language, and we offer great study products from flashcards to kanji posters to textbooks and more. One time-honored way to motivate yourself to study is to take the Japanese Language Proficiency Test every December. The test comes in five levels, from N5 (the easiest, testing kana and basic kanji) to N1 (the hardest, required to attend a Japanese university), with the idea being that you can try to raise your level in between each test. This year the test will be held on December 2, so there are only 110 days of studying left!
