JLPT 1 Kanji collection, the last list

I have collected the kanjis in 12 articles for you, and this is the last one. It took me approximately one month to learn them all, and I need to review the words everyday, otherwise I forget them very quickly. Feel free to use them and I hope we can all pass the exam!

Wooden dedications on a Japanese shrine


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.

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.

And then here is the last list. Katakana or hiragana readings and meanings also included in the list. If you feel like you still need to practice the hiragana or the katakana alphabet, you can do so by clicking on them.
