What is HSK?

The Chinese Proficiency Test or HanyuShuipingKaoshi (HSK) is China's national standardized test designed and developed to assess the Chinese language proficiency of non-native speakers. It can be considered to be an equivalent of the TOEFL in English the way it draws more and more foreign examinees. The HSK certificate is becoming a talisman to find job opportunities

Omeida Chinese Academy provides you all materials and instructions to confidently take this exam, and our teachers are more than qualified to assist you in achieving your goal.

How will our course prepare you?

Customized to your HSK level

The HSK test is administered to 6 different levels, each numerically increasing in difficulty and measuring a higher degree of Chinese proficiency.  Depending upon your starting Chinese proficiency, we will determine which test level you should work towards completing.  Depending on intended length of your study, we can hopefully overcome multiple HSK levels.  To learn more about HSK Level Classification, visit HSK level classification.

Exercises and practice exams with certified HSK material

We provide you with materials published from the HSK test administrators that are designed to provide you with insight of the exam content.  These materials include HSK workbooks that provide you with drills and exercises that fully encompass the possible material in the exam.

Depending on your progress, we also administer HSK practice exams every 2 weeks to once a month.  This will help prep you for how to manage your time during the 90-120minute exam, as well as give you a feel for how prepared you are for your current exam level. 

Why take the HSK?

  • To serve as a reference when applying to jobs that requires a certain level of Chinese competency;
