I have to take a Japanese language test prior to my study abroad. I was wondering if anybody has taken this test called AAPPL and what does it compare to the JLPT? I took the practice test which seemed quite easy. I would assume I am around N2 level on the JLPT but my study abroad doesn’t use the JLPT for some reason?
Never heard of this, but apparently it’s between N4 and N3 but there is speaking as well, which does not exist in the JLPT (and is probably why they use it instead of the JLPT).
I just took the test. I would recommend the JLPT over this. I found the speaking area to be very hard to following because of its running timer and there was an odd video of someone nodding whilst you are trying to speak. (Maybe I’m a bad test taker) there is no grammar section or kanji section, all the writing prompts follow the same structure and there is a match the sentence to the picture which leads to difficulty when choosing between two pictures that meet the same description. Everything is easily understandable but it just tests your patience over your ability in Japanese.
