jlpt-student-katharine“These classes were a helpful, affordable and convenient complement to my JLPT preparation and I believe they were an important factor in helping me to pass the N3.”

When I decided to attempt the JLPT N3, I took weekly JLPT prep classes at JOI for the months leading up to the test.

These classes not only allowed me to practice and test myself on a lot of the grammar, vocabulary and kanji for the test level, but also to get ample exposure to the type of questions I could expect on the test, all with feedback from teachers when I got something wrong or there was something I didn’t understand.

I would recommend them to anyone preparing to take the JLPT. Many thanks to the patient, caring teachers at JOI!
