What are Jouyou Kanji?
Jouyou Kanji are the official list of 2,136 characters taught in Japanese primary and secondary school. The Jouyou mode offered in this program filters kanji and vocabulary for grades 1-6 and advanced characters, which vary by school. Note that the filter considers the characters themselves, and not the vocabulary they may produce. For example, a 1st grade filter will show vocabulary composed of characters taught in 1st grade, but the word may represent a concept learned much later.
What is the JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test)?
The Japanese Language Proficiency Test measures Japanese reading, listening and comprehension proficiency. There are 5 levels, N1-N5, N1 being the most difficult. While there is no official list of what is required for each level, the kanji and vocabulary that may appear on each level of the exam can be approximated by considering concept, level of abstraction and how often the word/character is used.
