What is HSK Test?
HSK stands for Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (汉语水平考试) or the Chinese proficiency exam. It’s an international standardized exam that evaluates the Chinese language abilities of non-native Chinese speakers. There are 6 HSK levels which determine the different stages of a learner’s fluency in daily, academic or professional application of the Chinese language.
Which HSK Level to Take?
Normally if you don’t have a target, we suggest you aim to pass the HSK 4. HSK 1 and HSK 2 are based on survival Chinese; HSK 3 and HSK 4 are focused on topics related to work, life and study; HSK 5 and HSK 6 are geared towards news, movies and more work-related topics. Most Chinese universities and companies require foreign students and staff to get at least HSK 4.
