About JLPTsensei.com

What is JLPT Sensei?

LPT Sensei is a language learning blog and online resource for people interested in learning Japanese. Most lessons are built focusing on passing the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT), as this is the standard test to show Japanese proficiency and is usually a requirement for getting a non-English speaking job in Japan.

About me

My name is Cruise Bogedin, and I’m the creator of JLPT Sensei.

I’m an American living in Japan and working full-time at a Japanese company and my work is done 100% in Japanese.

My Japanese is far from perfect, but the process of learning Japanese has had a profound impact on my life. Learning to speak a new language is not an easy task, and can be full of many low points, but it is an absolutely rewarding experience.

Thanks to learning Japanese, I’ve been able to make many new friends from around the world, experience new culture, and I also met my wife (who is actually Vietnamese, but we use Japanese as our common language).

It’s my hope that this website is helpful to as many people as possible in your journey learning Japanese.

Unfortunately, lately I am very busy due to my busy work schedule, but I try to add new lessons as often as I can.

In my spare time, I also run a YouTube channel about Cycling & Life in Japan.

There’s a lot of work involved in managing a website, including paying for hosting, managing all of the posts and creating new content.

I run a few ads to help with these costs, but it is not enough with the increased hosting demands as the site gets more popular.
