Free Online JLPT N5 Preparation Course




If you plan to come to Japan to study Japanese long-term, which means from 6-months to 2 years in length, you will be required to have a student visa. As a requirement for this visa, the Japanese government requires that all international students have achieved their N5-level on the Japanese language test, in order to satisfy this basic language requirement.

The Japan Study Abroad Network is supporting all of our international students who plan to come to Japan to study Japanese by offering this specialized 8-Week N5 Preparation Course program for FREE! This program is intended to boost your self-study and provide all of the supplementary training & and practise guidance necessary to pass the N5-level exam. This course applies to N5-level or beginner level certifications for the JLPT, EJU, NAT-TEST, BJT, J-TEST, TOP-J, and other Japanese language proficiency tests.

This program is held online on Saturdays (Japan Time), so that it can be accessible to the most number of students possible.


Our Program


This program is designed primarily for those who are planning on coming to Japan to study Japanese long-term, for which they will need to take an N5-level, beginner Japanese language test such as the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT). As such this program caters to beginner-level students with little to no experience in the language, and can be applicable to you even if you are not intending on taking a language test. Because of time restrictions, this program is intensive, held in a small-group class of only 5 students or less, and is best suited for students who are dedicated and have time for self-study. The classes will train your reading, writing, and listening comprehension skills, in addition to your knowledge of key grammar, that is tested for on the exam.

NOTE: It is highly recommended that you learn hiragana and katakana before beginning this course.
Please let us know if you haven’t learned these yet. On the first day, we will be reviewing your reading skills of these two alphabets.


Training areas:

  • Practical testing of your N5-level kanji knoweledge.
  • Key grammar patterns and vocabulary.
  • Listening comprehension.
  • Reading comprehension of test questions, practical sentences and short articles.
  • Writing sentences and paragraphs for short answer-style questions, applying your grammar knowledge and writing skills.
