About JLPTsensei.com

What is JLPT Sensei?

JLPT Sensei is a language learning blog and online resource for people interested in learning Japanese.

Our lessons are built around the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT), which is the standard test to show Japanese proficiency and also usually a requirement for getting a non-English speaking job in Japan.

We categorize all of our lessons by level (advanced N1 ~ N5 beginner) and category (grammar, vocabulary, kanji, etc) in organized lists with the goal of making it as simple as possible for students to easily find lessons.

We are constantly expanding this site and adding new sections and lessons.

About the creator

My name is Cruise. I’ve studied Japanese for over 10 years and initially made this website as a way to keep track of my personal notes, but it has developed into much more and is now one of the top online resources for learning Japanese and studying for the JLPT.

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

BTW, I love cycling and also run a YouTube channel about cycling and life in Japan (now life in Vietnam), called Two Wheel Cruise.
