For those who have studied Japanese elsewhere, placement tests are available to find the most suitable course. Please visit the DLLL main office during the counter hours to write the one according to you level. All tests are written only, but you may be asked to speak with one of the instructors for oral fluency. Hiragana and Katakana characters are assumed.
