Chinese Language Tests  汉语考试

HSK (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi

汉语水平考试

The HSK test was launched by Hanban in an effort to better serve Chinese language learners. The test is the result of coordinated efforts by the experts from different disciplines including Chinese language teaching, linguistics, psychology and educational measurement. The new exam combines the advantages of the original HSK while taking into consideration the recent trends in Chinese language training by conducting surveys and making use of the latest findings in international language testing. The HSK test is China’s officially recognized language proficiency exam. All HSK results are internationally recognized as proof of Chinese language proficiency and it is popular for non-native Chinese speakers to take the test sometime during their language study. HSK testing is held in Feb and October 2017 at UWA Claremont Campus.

Confucius Institute provides HSK individual tutorial based on the candidates’ requests. Please fill out the form and contact: confucius.institute@uwa.edu.au HSK Tutorial Enrolment Form

Youth Chinese Test (YCT)

中小学生汉语考试

The YCT test was developed by Hanban in an effort to encourage non-Chinese speaking primary and secondary school students to learn Chinese and improve their Chinese language proficiency. It consists of four levels in line with the HSK testing system, with the highest level equivalent to HSK Level 3. YCT tests will be in Aug and Nov 2017. Those who are interested in taking YCT, please contact us or your school Chinese teacher.
