HSK is an international standardised exam that tests and rates Chinese language proficiency. It assesses non-native Chinese speakers’ ability to use the Chinese language in their daily, academic and professional lives. This tutorial is for students who have completed the Chinese for Beginners, Level 1 to 3 and are ready to take the HSK test. It requires students to have a grasp of basic Chinese and be able to communicate in simple and routine tasks, requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters.
The results of the HSK test can serve as a reference in applying for a Confucius Institute Scholarship and as a Chinese language certificate for foreign students' entry into Chinese colleges. The results of the HSK are valid for two years (beginning from the test date).
