YCT Speaking Test Prep Course

Launched by Hanban, the new Young Learner's Chinese Test (YCT) is a proficiency exam designed for non-native speakers under the age of 15. The test evaluates foreign students' ability to use Chinese in both their daily and academic lives. The YCT includes two independent sections, one focused on writing and the other on speaking. The YCT Speaking Test Prep course in Chinese Learning includes a large amount of practice to help students master basic Chinese conversational skills and oral expression abilities, and improve their test-taking skills through simulated tests. The course also provides detailed introductions and strategies for YCT speaking tests to help students better understand and cope with the test. The speaking test is divided into two levels, namely, YCT (Beginner Level), YCT (Intermediate Level). YCT certificate can be used in applications for school transfer, study abroad and scholarships.
