The HSK test is an
international standardized exam that tests and rates Chinese language
proficiency. Taking the first letter of Hanyu (Chinese), Shuiping (proficiency)
and Kaoshi (test), it assesses non-native Chinese speakers’ abilities in using
the Chinese language in their daily, academic and professional lives.
Mainly targeted at adult
learners, over the years the HSK test has become one of the most important
benchmarks for colleges to admit students and place them at the appropriate
levels; for companies to hire, retain and promote their employees; and for
learners to assess and further improve their Chinese.
The test is paper-based
and usually takes 2-3 hours to finish. Questions include listening, reading and
writing. The score becomes available one month later and is good for two years. (learn more)
As its name indicates, YCT
(Youth Chinese Test) is specifically designed for young Chinese language
learners. It shares the structure and purpose of HSK and brings the similar
benefits to test takers. (learn more)
