Registration and Payment Details

Serious about studying Chinese? Join almost two million fellow students from all over the world who have taken the HSK test - China’s official language proficiency exam. The test measures the ability of a non-native speaker to use Chinese in their daily, working and academic life.

A HSK score is not only a way to measure your progress in Chinese, but also opens the door for many scholarship and summer camp applications.

It is internationally recognized and often used by governments and multi-nationals as a basis for employment, promotion and pay increases.

Watch the video to see how taking the HSK can benefit you.
