JLCT means the Japanese Language Capability Test and is conducted to measure the Japanese language communication skill of non-native Japanese people. It has 5 levels and those are JCT1, JCT2, JCT3, JCT4, JCT5. Further JLCT checks Japanese-language communication skill by dividing the test into the following three sections in each level:
1) Japanese Language knowledge (Character, vocabulary, grammar).
2) Comprehension reading.
In addition to these, JCT nursing care 3 and JCT nursing care 4 are available. The General, incorporated Federation of Japanese Language capability Testing Organization for non-native Japanese, JLCT operates under its parental organization The General, Federation of Japanese Kanji Association (President 田中正徳). The main focus of the Japanese Kanji Association (Since its inception in 08/August/2012) has been on the school preparatory activities. Currently, we are conducting the kanji capability test 3 times a year, in nearly 250 centers across the country. The total number of examinees that appeared so far in the exam has crossed the hallmark number of 50000. In this way, we are continually striving to develop an intellectual society. We also have a team of excellent, abled, experienced staff in in-charge to organize the test.
