Mandarin Chinese and HSK Program Overview


Guidance, Coaching, and Preparation for the HSK Exam

PRC Study's Mandarin Chinese and HSK programs are designed for participants who wish to learn the Chinese language and receive comprehensive training for the HSK exam. This program is particularly useful for those who want to enter a Chinese university for degree programs, appraise one's own Chinese language proficiency level, and/or find work with companies or government agencies in China who require official proof documenting one's Chinese language proficiency level.

What is the HSK?

The HSK (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi), also known as the Chinese Proficiency Test, is a national standardized test designed to evaluate the Chinese proficiency of non-native Chinese speakers, such as foreigners, overseas Chinese and people from Chinese national minorities. Depending on the participant's Chinese language ability, three levels of HSK tests are available:

Basic 100-800 hours of formal classroom study in Chinese language
Elementary-Intermediate 400-2000 hours of classroom instruction in Chinese language
Advanced over 3000 hours of classroom study in Chinese language

Why Do People Take the HSK Exam to Get the HSK Certificate?

  • To meet the language requirement and be eligible to enter a degree or graduate studies program within a Chinese university
  • To be exempted from taking university required language courses
  • For employers to evaluate job applicants' Chinese language proficiency

Why is Beijing the Best Place to Prepare for the HSK Exam?

Mandarin Chinese, also know as Putonghua, is the official language of China and it is used for all of the nation's political, diplomatic, social and commercial needs. Nearly a billion people speak Mandarin Chinese as their main or only language and Beijing is recognized for having the purest and most universally understood version of the language. Surpassing the HSK exam is then best done in Beijing because it offers the best immersion environment for learning standard Mandarin Chinese.
