JLPT 1 Kanji collection, reaching one thousand

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. In addition if you want to work here most of the employees require you to speak at least on the N2 level.
