Understanding your Japanese level

The tricky thing about knowing your Japanese level is that to some extent, your level is unique to you, depending on how and where you've studied Japanese. However, unlike many languages which have a huge array of textbooks, the majority of Japanese language schools use the Minna no Nihongo method. If you have taken a Japanese course using those books, you can estimate your level based on how far you got through the books. However, if you're self-taught, or have moved beyond the textbooks, a Japanese test or an evaluation by a Japanese teacher is likely to be the best way to measure your Japanese level.
