Special Announcement on JLPT 2020B in Penang

We apologize for the delay in making this announcement as we were trying our best to find an alternative venue after the scheduled venue withdrew its permission at the last minute. After numerous unsuccessful attempts, we decided to use our premise to host the test. However, due to the capacity of our rooms and the required ‘social-distancing’ requirements under CMCO, we could only accommodate candidates from Level N1. Hence, regrettably we have to cancel the remaining levels (i.e., Level N2 to N5) in Penang. Your kind understanding would be very much appreciated.

N1 Candidates for Penang

  1. Support letters will be prepared and emailed to you within a week. If you have not received it by Wednesday November 25, 2020, please write to casee343ster@gmail.com.
  2. Your kind cooperation in complying strictly to our SOP would be highly appreciated.
  3. Those who wish to withdraw from sitting the test, may apply for a refund completing by the withdrawal form ( https://forms.gle/QcVBF9DukHh5rCUL6 ).

N2, N3, N4 & N5 Candidates for Penang

We were equally as disappointed as you are over its cancellation. However, we sincerely seek your kind understanding that this decision was made to ensure that your safety is not compromised. We look very much forward to your participation again next year.
Please note that: –

  1. You will receive an email from us on the refund procedure. If you did not receive such email by November 23, 2020, please write to casee343ster@gmail.com.
  2. Request for transfer to sit the test at other test centres is not allowed.
    Once again, our sincere apologies for the disappointment and inconvenience caused.

Postponement of the Annual General Meeting and addendum to Penang Japanese Language Society’s policy on Coronavirus (COVID19) – 16th March 2020 Update

On the 16th of March 2020, the Malaysian Registrar of Societies instructed all registered organisations in the country to postpone any conferences or general assemblies until June 30, 2020. In compliance to this directive, all classes and planned group meetings of the Penang Japanese Language Society, including the Annual General Meeting scheduled for 22nd March 2020, shall be postponed until further notice. Teachers of all current ongoing classes have been advised to inform their enrolled students accordingly. Resumption of lessons and new intakes will be announced in due course once the situation improves. During this time however, the Society’s premises will still be open to provide support for other official matters that do not require group gatherings, such as that related to the registration of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT). For such matters, visitors are reminded to abide by the policy posted on 12th March 2020 when conducting Society business.

During these trying times, please stay healthy, and practice good hygiene and social distancing measures recommended by our Ministry of Health. Let’s do our collective part to combat the spread of COVID19
