HSK & HSKK

Description

What is HSK?
The HSK (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi) test is China's only official test of Chinese language proficiency for non-native speakers. It is open to other nationalities, overseas Chinese, and members of ethnic minority groups in China, and provides the global standard for Chinese language proficiency from beginner to advanced level. It also provides a concrete demonstration of your ability to prospective employers, foreign institutions and other international organisations.
The HSK test consists of a writing test and a speaking test. There are six levels of writing tests, running from 1-6. And there are three levels of speaking tests, namely the HSK Beginner Level, HSK Intermediate Level, and HSK Advanced Level. During the speaking test, test takers’ speeches will be recorded.
