Introduction to HSK Test

What is HSK?

HSK, China’s Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi, is an international Chinese proficiency test that is established to test the Chinese proficiency of non-native Chinese speakers. HSK is firstly introduced by Hanban, headquarters of all Confucius Institutes in 1990. The HSK can be coupled with the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). Therefore it’s easy to define on which level you are. The current HSK system has six levels for the paper tests and three levels for the oral tests.
