Introduction The Japanese Language Proficiency Test is a test that started in 1984 to measure and certify the Japanese language proficiency 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 has been created as a collection of questions for the N4 level listening test of this exam. First, "Problem Introduction" gives an overview of the problem format and its solution. Next, in the "Ability Training Edition", you will learn to acquire the necessary skills for each question type. 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. You can learn the skills required for each question according to the problem format of the features of this book. 2 By learning each skill step by step, you can acquire listening comprehension without difficulty. 3 Written in easy Japanese and with translation, you can use it for self-study. It can also be used as review material for beginners because it focuses on the points that beginner level learners can easily trip over. We have met many learners who do not know how to learn listening comprehension and have been thinking about how to improve their listening comprehension. Therefore, this book summarizes the skills of "how to listen" so that you can acquire them one by one according to the format of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. We hope that this book will be useful not only for taking the Japanese Language Proficiency Test, but also for learning, living, and working in Japanese.
