Proficiency Testing (HSK Levels 1-3)

The HSK is a standardised testing system developed by Hanban (International Office of the Chinese Language Council).

Now used globally, the test provides learners with an excellent guide for their learning progress. The certificates are also portable, since the grading and results system is recognised at every Confucius Institute around the world. It is also the standard for institutes of higher education in China and Chinese language studies departments at major international universities.
