Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (HSK)

Next Test: 13 October 2019, register by 16 September 2019

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.

Youth Chinese Test (YCT)

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.

The Confucius Institute will hold YCT tests in August and November 2019.  If you are interested in taking the YCT in the future, contact us or your school Chinese teacher.
