Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi, (simplified Chinese: 汉语水平考试; traditional Chinese: 漢語水平考試; hanyu pinyin: Hànyǔ Shuǐpíng Kǎoshì), shortened as HSK, is the People's Republic of China's only standardized test of Standard Mandarin Chinese proficiency for non-native speakers, such as foreign students, overseas Chinese, and members of ethnic minority groups in China. It is also known as the "Chinese Proficiency Test".[1]

Every year, HSK certificates are issued to those who score well enough. The HSK is primarily conducted in Simplified Chinese.
