HSK Tests 汉语水平考试
HSK is a short form for Hànyǔ shuǐpíng kǎoshì 汉语水平考试, ie Chinese Proficiency Test, designed to assess the Chinese language proficiency of non-native speakers from Level 1 to Level 6 by the official Chinese HanBan Institute. The HSK written test consists of Listening & Reading & Writing exams, while the oral test HSKK has to be taken separately.
With over 2 million people in Europe taking the test every year, and 5 million people worldwide, HSK is undoubtedly the most authoritative certificate you would want for your Chinese studies.
