Japanese Language JFT Test Program

We also offer a formal test preraration program for the Japan Foundation Test (JFT). This is a computer-based online test for foreigners who wish to live and work in Japan.

It is used to assess whether they have the Japanese language proficiency to be able to engage in everyday conversation and handle daily life without difficulties. The JFT is also used as a test to measure the level of Japanese language proficiency needed to obtain the residency status as part of the Specified Skilled Worker program.

Our JFT training program consists of a series of seven (7) courses. Each course has 25 hours of instruction, for a total of 175 hours. You can choose to study either in-person in our classroom facilities, or online through ZOOM. You can also choose between having a GROUP class, with others, or MAN-TO-MAN study with yourself and a teacher. (MAN-TO-MAN classes are more expensive, but GROUP classes require at least two students.)

New schedules open whenever there are new students and time-slots are assigned on a first-come-first-served basis.

How much does it cost?

Each course in the JFT preparation series costs ₱ 3,999.00 for GROUP study. The total cost for the GROUP study option of the 175 hours of the JFT training course will be 7 courses X ₱ 3,999.00 = ₱ 27,993.00. There is a nonrefundable deposit of ₱ 1,500.00 for each level.

If you would rather have the MAN-TO-MAN study, the cost will be ₱ 6,999.00 per course. The total cost for the MAN-TO-MAN study option of the 175 hours of of the JFT training course will be 7 courses X ₱ 6,999.00 = ₱ 48,993.00. There is a nonrefundable deposit of ₱ 1,700.00 for each module.

Each course fee includes instruction, materials, and all service fees and taxes. We accept payment in cash, credit or debit card, GCASH, or PayMaya. Please see our PAYMENT POLICY at the bottom of the page.


After the first course, you continue through the rest of the entire series so that you can learn enough to pass the online JFT exam!
