Introduction to new HSK

In an effort to better serve Chinese language learners, Confucius Institute Headquarters (Hanban) launched a new HSK (Chinese Proficiency Test), a product of the coordinated efforts of domestic and foreign experts from different disciplines including Chinese language teaching, linguistics, psychology and educational measurement. The new test takes advantages of the original HSK while harnessing the recent trends in Chinese language training. This is achieved through conducting surveys and making use of the latest findings in international language testing systems.

The new HSK test is an international standardized test of Chinese language proficiency. It assesses non-native Chinese speakers’ abilities in using Chinese language in their daily, academic and professional lives. HSK consists of six levels, namely HSK (level I), HSK (level II), HSK (level III), HSK (level IV), HSK (level V), and HSK (level VI). On the other hand, HSK Speaking Test (HSKK) assesses the test takers’ oral Chinese abilities. HSKK consists of three levels, HSKK (Primary level), HSKK (Intermediate level) and HSKK (Advanced level). HSKK is conducted in the form of audio recording.
