Winter 2010 JLPT Date Set!

Now that LeBron’s “decision” has made him the walking manifestation of the Cleveland curse, the time has come for Japanese language students across the county to consider their decision.  Is this the year to go for that JLPT certification?  As of earlier this week, the December 2010 U.S. JLPT test date has been set.

Long story short, the test date is Sunday, December 5, 2010 at limited locations across the U.S.

Registration begins on August 2nd.
