HSK Test Prep Course

HSK knows as Hanyu shuiping Kaoshi or Chinese language Profiency Test is an international standardized exam taken by non-native speakers(including foreign students, overseas Chinese people and members of ethnic minority groups in China). The new HSK is an international standardized exam that tests and rates Chinese language proficiency. It assesses non-native Chinese speakers’ abilities in using the Chinese language in their daily, academic and professional lives. It is administered by Hanban. The test is comprised of three sections: Reading, Writing and Listening. Each section is worth 100 points. There is no writing section for HSK levels 1 and 2, therefore those have a maximum of 200 points.

I. Test Structure

The HSK tests consist of  Written Test and HSK Speaking Test(HSKK), which are taken separately. Written Tests include HSK (Level 1), HSK (Level 2), HSK (Level 3), HSK (Level 4), HSK (Level 5) and HSK (Level 6). The HSK Speaking Test(HSKK) includes HSKK (Primary Level), HSKK(Intermediate Level) and HSKK (Advanced Level). HSKK is conducted in the form of audio recording.
