JLPT 1 Kanji collection, over one thousand

In general if you want to work in Japan you need to speak Japanese. Most of the companies require you to speak at least on the N2 level, but obviously the best is if you have the N1 certificate. Unfortunately for that you would need at least a couple of thousand study hours and a lot of patience. I have collected the kanjis for you in 12 articles that are needed only for the N1 level. Feel free to use them and I hope we can all pass the exam!

Twilight in Japan


Those who pass the JLPT ( Japanese Language Proficiency Test ) N1 level could receive 15 points when applying for working visas. This is according to a new point based evaluation system that was introduced in May 12, 2012, which is responsible for prioritizing highly educated people that are willing to enter Japan. For more information, you can refer to the official website of the Immigration Bureau of Japan. There are no restrictions on who can take the test. People of all ages and backgrounds are welcome to take the JLPT.
