Introduction to New HSK Test

 

I Test Structure
The new HSK is a standardized international Chinese proficiency test which targets non-native Chinese speakers and evaluates the student’s capability in applying the Chinese language in their studies, personal life, and work. The new type of examination consists of two independent parts: a written exam and an oral exam. The written exam is comprised of HSK-Level 1, HSK-Level 2, HSK- Level 3, HSK- Level 4, HSK- Level 5, and HSK- Level 6. The oral exam is comprised of HSK (Elementary), HSK (Intermediate), and HSK (Advanced). Sound-recording devices are utilized during the oral examination.

Test Grades
The direct comparison between the new HSK test and Chinese Language Proficiency Scales for Speakers of Other Languages and The Common European Framework Reference for Language (CEF) is as follows:
a. HSK- Level 1:
Designed for learners who can understand and use some simple Chinese characters and sentences to communicate, and prepares them for continuing their Chinese studies;
b.  HSK- Level 2:
Designed for elementary learners who can use Chinese in a simple and direct manner, applying it in a basic fashion in their daily life;
c.  HSK- Level 3:
Designed for elementary-intermediate learners who can use Chinese to serve the demands of their personal lives, studies, and work. Additionally, they are capable of completing most of the communicative tasks they experience during their Chinese tour;
d.  HSK- Level 4:
Designed for intermediate learners who can discuss a relatively wide range of topics in Chinese and are capable of communicating with Chinese speakers at a high standard;
e.  HSK- Level 5:
Designed for learners who can read Chinese newspapers and magazines, watch Chinese films, and are capable of writing and delivering a lengthy speech in Chinese;
f.  HSK- Level 6:
Designed for learners who can easily understand any information communicated in Chinese and are capable of smoothly expressing themselves in written or oral form.

III Test Functions
The new HSK test is aimed primarily at oversea-based Chinese learners. The test scores meet the various demands of different organizations or groups of people as follows:
A. Offers a reference for educational institutions to recruit students, classify students, exempt students from some courses, and grant credits;
B. Offers a reference for employers to employ, train, and promote employees;
C. Offers a reference for Chinese language learners to understand and improve their ability to apply Chinese;
D. Offers a reference for related Chinese teaching institutions, or training organizations, to evaluate teaching standards and the effectiveness of different training.
