A BRUNEIAN has been selected to participate in the Japanese Language Programme for Overseas Students, announced the Japan Embassy yesterday.

Norhafizah Hayati Osman will join other Japanese foreign language students on a trip to Japan today until September 10, where they will visit the Japan Foundation Japanese Language Institute, Kansai in Osaka and other locations across the country.

They will also sit in on lectures about the Japanese language as well as the social and cultural aspects of Japan, visit cultural facilities and historical sites, and conduct home visits.

The participants are learning the Japanese language in universities, colleges and other educational institutes. They were selected for the programme based on their outstanding achievements in the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT).

A test for non-native Japanese speakers, the JLPT evaluates and certifies their Japanese-language proficiency.

Members of the public who wish to assess their Japanese language ability were encouraged to apply for the next JLPT slated for December 7. The Japan Embassy is now accepting applications until the closing date on September 12.

Details of the JLPT as well as the sample questions are available on the JLPT website at
