What Is The HSK?

The HSK, officially short for Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (汉语水平考试), is an internationalized standard test for non-native Chinese speakers to assess the Mandarin they use in their daily, academic, and professional lives. The test is administered by Hanban, an agency of the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China.
