Starting with the next exam date, on June the 16th 2019, CI Ljubljana HSK center is introducing the computer based test.

What is HSK?

HSK (Hanyu Shuiping kaoshi) is the international standardized Chinese proficiency test and is the world's most known and official proof of the knowledge of Chinese language. The test was developed by Hanban (Office of Chinese language council International) assigned by the Chinese Ministry of Education in order to meet the needs of growing number of people learning Chinese worldwide. It was first established in 1984, and carried out in the foreign countries in 1991.

There are different types of tests, beside the HSK, the BTC (Business Chinese test) and the YCT (Youth Chinese test), and the HSKK (Oral Exam of Chinese language). Today there is a new version of the HSK test. The New HSK is an upgraded version of the exam.

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.

The test HSK is done in 6 different levels, which must be passed separately.
