Japanese for Specific Purposes
(f) Preparatory Course for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test
MACC has specially designed and developed courses for each level of the Proficiency Tests. The Test consists of three parts of Kanji & Vocabulary, Listening Comprehension and Reading & Grammar. Past papers, textbooks with related questions and MACC handouts are used throughout this course. MACC also organizes and provides the original mock tests that have the same format and similar contents as those of the Test itself. The course concentrates on the anticipated questions and consolidates each point necessary for passing the Test. The pass rate is generally much higher than that of the average figure that the Examination Agency publicizes.
