The Chinese Proficiency Test (汉语水平考试)

The Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (HSK) is China's national standardized test designed to assess the Chinese language proficiency of speakers whose first language is not Chinese. The HSK measures the proficiency level of non-native speakers of standard Chinese, which may include foreigners, overseas Chinese, and students from Chinese national minorities. It is used as a guideline for admission to colleges and universities in China and Southeast Asia, as well as a reference standard in job recruiting, both within China and in countries around the world where Chinese language skills are necessary. It enjoys great international prestige. There are more than 100 HSK centers in 30 different nations and regions worldwide. More than 540,000 people have already taken the HSK and number increases greatly every year.
