Japanese placement

Thank you for your interest in learning Japanese.

If you have never studied or spoken Japanese, please register for JPN 101. Beginning Japanese I. It is normally offered in the Fall semester (September – December). Check the schedule of courses for class times.

If you have studied Japanese (in school or on your own) or spoken Japanese (at home or in an informal setting), please take the placement test prior to registration in order to determine the right entry level course for you. The placement test comprises 40 multiple-choice questions and measures your grammatical knowledge. After you take the test, you will receive an email from a Japanese language faculty member about a recommended course within 3-4 days. If you are recommended to start above JPN 101, you may be asked to have a 5-10 minute conversation in Japanese on Zoom to confirm your overall language level including listening and speaking.
