Fall is upon us, meaning both the start of school and standardized tests. The Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (HSK) is an international standardized proficiency test for non-native Chinese speakers. It is used in applying for study abroad programs, Chinese language scholarships, and as an internationally recognized standard of Chinese language ability that can be used for resumes and other professional applications. The Confucius Institute at the University of Minnesota is the only official HSK testing center in Minnesota, and will be offering the written and oral HSK on 21 October, 2012.
This year, the written test will be offered in both hard copy and online formats. The registration deadline 15 September, 2012. The oral test only has one format and has the same registration deadline of 15 September, 2012.
