What is HSK?

HSK stands for  汉语水平考试 (Hànyǔ Shuǐpíng Kǎoshì) and is the standardized International Chinese proficiency test for non-native speakers.

The test is administered by Hanban, a non-government organization that cooperates with the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China.
The test’s aim is very simple: it’s meant to certificate language proficiency for higher education and professional purposes. That is to say, the HSK test assesses non-native Chinese speakers’ abilities in using the Chinese language in their daily, academic and professional lives.


5 reasons why to take the HSK exam

  2. Demonstrate your competence in application for an HSK scholarship for support in academic studies
  3. Attain certification of exemption from taking Chinese language courses
  4. Get official accreditation for professional purposes
  5. Self-development: set a personal goal and encourage yourself to study harder!
