Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (HSK) Chinese Mandarin Tuition

Translated as Chinese Proficiency Test, the Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (HSK) serves as China’s only national standardized test to assess the proficiency levels of Chinese language for non-native speakers who include overseas Chinese nationals and international students.

Developed by the HSK Center of Beijing Language and Culture University, the HSK certificate reflects Chinese language competency and is widely recognised internationally for educational institution admissions and employment opportunities. Certificate holders can also have a better gauge of their level of Mandarin proficiency for use in daily lives.

HSK Categories

HSK is divided into three categories: Basic, Elementary-Intermediate and Advanced.

HSK (Basic) is designed for beginners who have acquired knowledge of 200-600 basic Chinese words. They meet the basic needs and requirements for communication and have the ability to understand and use very simple Chinese phrases.

HSK Elementary-Intermediate is suitable for those who have an extremely good grasp of the Chinese language, having mastered about 600-1200 Chinese words and certain rules of grammar.

HSK Advanced applies to those who have mastery of approximately 2500-5000 Chinese words with corresponding grammatical rules. They have the ability to use Chinese and communicate in their daily lives including professional and academic settings.

HSK is comprised of six levels that are corresponding to the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEF) as well as the Chinese Language Proficiency Scales for Speakers of Other Languages (CLPS).
