FAQ

What is the HSK?

HSK (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi) was launched by the Center for Language Education and Cooperation and authorized by Chinese Test International (CTI). It is the most authoritative standardised test for Chinese language learners to evaluate their Chinese language level.

What does the HSK entail?

HSK focuses mainly on testing students’ Chinese communicative competence for everyday life, study and work. It is divided into oral and written examinations: 

  • The written examination is split into HSK (level 1), HSK (level 2), HSK (Level 3), HSK (Level 4), HSK (Level 5) and HSK (level 6).

  • The full name of the oral examination is Hanyushuiping Kouyu Kaoshi (HSKK), and is split into HSKK (Primary level), HSKK (Intermediate level) and HSKK (Advanced level).

Who can apply to take the HSK?

Chinese learners from anywhere in the world can apply for the examination (without age restriction).

What kind of Chinese communicative competence do HSK levels 1-6 represent?

Passing HSK Level 1 means that you can communicate in Chinese at a basic level, and at HSK Level 2 you are more proficient and have achieved an excellent level of elementary Chinese. 

 

Other levels can be described as follows:

HSK(Level 3)

You can complete basic communication tasks in everyday life, study and work in Chinese. When travelling in China, you can deal with communication tasks in some scenarios.

HSK(Level 4)

You can use Chinese to talk about a broader range of topics and communicate fluently with Chinese speakers. 

HSK(Level 5)

You can read Chinese newspapers and magazines as well as enjoy Chinese film and television festivals.  You can use spoken and written Chinese fairly comprehensively.

HSK(Level 6)

You can easily understand information that you hear or read in Chinese.  You can express the points fluently in spoken or written Chinese.

Why should I take the HSK?

For learners:

  • A pass for studying in China;

  • A powerful qualification for competing in the workplace;

  • A requirement for applying for scholarships and summer camps;

  • A reference for understanding and improving your ability to use Chinese.

 

For institutions and teaching centers:

A reference point for recruitment, classroom teaching, course exemption, granting credit and evaluating teaching.

 

 For companies:

A reference point for employment, training and promotion of staff.

How many times is the HSK held this year?

The HSK examinations are relatively frequent. In 2022, there will be examinations in January, March, April, may, July, October, November, and December. The specific examination dates are published on CTI’s website.
