In the past, Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT test) consist of 4 Levels with Level 1 being the hardest level. Most people who passed Level 3 find Level 2 to be extremely difficult. There was a big gap between Level 2 and Level 3. To address the problem, The Japan Foundation has announced adding a new Level to JLPT Test. In the future there will be 5 different levels.
Once the new test is passed, we will let you know about it.
