Why do most Filipinos want to work abroad, specifically in Japan?
One of the main reasons is the competitive salary. Japan has one of the highest wages in the world, and Filipinos can earn significantly more money working in Japan than they could in the Philippines. Another reason why Filipinos choose to work in Japan is because of the good record it has. Japan is a safe and developed country with a strong economy and a low crime rate. Filipinos also appreciate the Japanese culture and values, such as hard work, discipline, and respect. Japan has strict labor laws that protect workers’ rights, and the government is committed to ensuring that all workers, including OFWs, are treated with respect.
Applying to Japan can be a challenge, especially if you need to demonstrate your Japanese language skills. One way to do this is to take the J.TEST, a standardized test that objectively measures the Japanese language proficiency of foreigners.
The J.TEST is held six times a year in the Philippines, unlike the JLPT, which is only held twice a year. This makes it a more convenient option for busy learners.
The J.TEST has three levels:
A-C level: Advanced
DE level: Beginners to Intermediate
FG level: Beginners
