1. WHAT IS THE CHINESE PROFICIENCY TEST (HSK)?

HSK (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi) is the only internationally recognized test for Chinese as a foreign language and can serve as proof of your Chinese language skills. The HSK test is divided into six different levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 6 the highest. Furthermore, you can take the HSKK (Hanyu Shuiping Kouyu Kaoshi) test, which is the HSK oral test. Both tests can be taken at the same day. For more information about HSK, a detailed description of the requirements of the different levels and test reference materials, please visit www.chinesetest.cn. Levels 1 and 2 offer pinyin alongside Chinese characters, which is why these levels are suitable for beginners.

 

2. WHY SHOULD YOU TAKE THE HSK TEST?

There are a number of good reasons for those studying the Chinese language to take the HSK test:

Taking the HSK test can help you to identify you current Chinese language level. Additionally, taking the test repeatedly will allow you to follow your language skill progression.  
The HSK test can be a great motivational factor to improve your language skills even further.
A passed HSK test can be necessary when you apply to study in China, apply for summer camps, etc.
Having passed the HSK test can be of great help when you apply for a job where Chinese language skills are required.

 

3. WHICH IS THE RIGHT LEVEL FOR ME?

If you are unsure of your own Chinese level and which test to take you can ask for an English guide to test levels 1 – 3 by contacting the local CI. You can also find HSK mock tests for all levels on www.chinesetest.cn under “Practice Test”. Please notice that the introduction to the mock tests here are all in Chinese.
