What is the BJT?

Business communication proficiency
–the ability to understand and implement the Japanese language

The communicative proficiency required in business settings involves the ability to promote a project in Japanese and explain things plainly in Japanese to others with specialties and backgrounds that differ from your own. You must also be able to ask for clarification of unclear points. In other words, it is an ability to understand and implement the Japanese language in order to cope appropriately with business issues.

The business communication proficiency is measured on a scale of 0 to 800.

The BJT is a proficiency test measuring the examinee’s current communicative proficiency in business in Japanese language.
