HSK (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi) Chinese Proficiency Test was held in Asia Pacific School on 28th March 2015 (Saturday) successfully. There were 21 students from our school and 2 students from other schools to attend the test. The age of candidates was between 10 to 18 years old.
HSK Chinese Proficiency Test was administered and conducted by The Office of Chinese Language Council International (HANBAN), an agency of the Chinese government. The Hanban of Beijing, China has launched, and is conducting the International Chinese Proficiency Test around the world to cope with the increasing demand from overseas, particularly in learning and mastering proper Chinese language.
HSK is a standardized international Chinese proficiency test, directed to non-native speakers to examine their capability in applying the Chinese language in their studies, personal life and work. There are two independent parts for HSK, i.e. a writing test and an oral test. The writing test is divided into 6 levels, while the oral test is divided into Elementary, Intermediate and Advanced. During the oral test, sound recording devices are used.
The assessment in term of writing test and oral test is aimed to provide a platform for the candidates to measure their ability upon completing each level. HSK serves as an international benchmark for the purpose of academic pursuit, and to meet the living and working needs.
We hope more students will register themselves in this test in the future.
