What is HSK Exam?
China's Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi, known as the "HSK" or the Chinese Language Proficiency Test, is a standardized test developed by the HSK Test Center at Beijing Language and Culture University (BLCU). The HSK test is meant to assess the Chinese language proficiency of non-native speakers (foreigners, overseas Chinese and China's ethnic minorities). It aims to assess examinees’ ability to understand spoken and written Chinese. HSK certification is a widely recognized measure of one's Chinese language proficiency level and can be used in university admissions and job applications.
Our HSK Test Prep courses are divided into 6 levels in accordance with the levels of HSK test, the one-to-one HSK Prep courses can be tailored to your level and individual needs. Our professional Chinese teachers will select appropriate HSK-related materials and work around your particular strengths and weaknesses to maximize the chances that you will get the best HSK test score possible.
