THE Japanese embassy held a certificate presentation ceremony for 17 Bruneians who passed the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) in December.

Charge d’Affaires Dr Toshio Kaneko handed out certificates to the students on Friday.

The embassy in a statement said through the test, the students proved they were able to understand Japanese used in everyday situations and in a variety of circumstances to a certain degree.

The JLPT has been offered by the Japan Foundation and Japan Educational Exchanges and Services since 1984 as a means of evaluating and certifying the proficiency in Japanese of non-native speakers.

In 2014, there were more than 680,000 examinees across the globe, making the JLPT the largest-Japanese language test in the world.

The JLPT 2016 will be held on December 4, and the application process will run from July or August until September, the embassy said.
