Introduction The Japanese Language Proficiency Test is a test that started in 1984 to measure and certify the Japanese language skills of non-native Japanese speakers. The number of examinees has increased year by year, and it is now one of the largest foreign language exams in the world. Over the past 20 years since the start of the exam, the number of learners has diversified and the purpose of learning Japanese has changed. Therefore, the content of the new "Japanese Language Proficiency Test" changed significantly in 2010. In the new exam, not only knowledge but also Japanese ability that can be actually used is required. This book was created as a collection of N4 level questions for this exam. First, "Introduction to Problems" gives an overview of the form of problems and their solutions. Next, you will learn to acquire the necessary language knowledge in the "Ability Training Edition". Finally, in the "mock exam", you can see how strong you are by trying to solve the same type of questions as the actual exam. A collection of items that are expected to be asked in the N4 exam, referring to the old questioning criteria 3 and 4, official samples, and official question collections, which are the features of this book. 2 Organized so that you can get an overview of beginner's grammar items. It suggests aiming for learning that leads to the N3 level while solidifying the basics of beginners. ③ Brief explanations and abundant exercises. Arranged so that you can immediately practice what you learned on the left page on the right page. ④ The commentary comes with an English translation. In order to improve verbal communication, it is important to create sentences that convey what you want to say correctly. To do this, you need to solidify the foundation without neglecting the basic grammar learning of the beginners. We hope that this book will be useful for taking the Japanese Language Proficiency Test N4, and at the same time, it will be a stepping stone to the N3 exam, and above all, it will be useful for communicating in Japanese. We would like to thank Atsushi Idemoto, Ayako Tanaka, and Tomoko Sano of the First Editorial Department for their great help in creating this book.
