HSK Test One


Some of you may be wondering what exactly is the HSK, well the HSK is an official Chinese language proficiency test administered by the Chinese government. I have been studying Chinese for some time, but unfortunately now that I am no longer in school, I have been studying Chinese less and less. The ultimate reason why I am taking the HSK is because I hope that this will help me with utilizing my time and setting goals for me to keep up with my language skills. HSK stands for Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi and it translates as Chinese Proficiency Test. The HSK is for those who want to show their proficiency in the Chinese language, for either work, academic or personal reasons. I have registered to take the first level test on December 1st of this year. In preparation for the test, I will be spending between 1-2 hours a day on my Chinese language skills and my old textbooks. Thankfully there is a testing location here in North Carolina, so I will be driving to NC State to take my test! I’ll keep you all posted on my results.
