HSK/HSKK/YCT

Introduction of HSK/HSKK (Chinese Proficiency Test)

The Hànyǔ Shuǐpíng Kǎoshì (汉语水平考试), also known as HSK or the Chinese Proficiency Test, is a national standardized test designed and developed to assess the Chinese language proficiency of non-native speakers including foreigners, overseas Chinese and students from Chinese national minorities. Supervised by the Office of Chinese Language Council International (also known as Hanban) under the PRC Ministry of Education, HSK is held regularly in China and other countries each year. 

HSK Speaking Test (HSKK) assesses the test takers’ oral Chinese abilities. HSKK consists of three levels, HSKK (Primary level), HSKK (Intermediate level) and HSKK (Advanced level). HSKK is conducted in the form of audio recording.

Youth Chinese Test (YCT),an international standardized test of Chinese language proficiency, assesses the primary and middle school students’ abilities to use Chinese as second language in their daily and academic lives. YCT is divided into writing and speaking tests, which are independent to each other. The writing test consists of four levels, namely, YCT (level I), YCT (level II), YCT (level III), and YCT (level IV).
