The new HSk is an international standardized exam that texts and rates Chinese language proficiency. It assesses non-native Chinese speaker's abilities in using the Chinese language in their daily, academic and professional lives. The new HSK consists of a writing test and a speaking test, which are independent of each other. There are 6 levels of writing tests, namely the HSK (level I), HSK (level II), HSK (level III), HSK (level IV), HSK (level V). HSK (level VI). There are 3 levels of speaking tests, namely the HSK (beginner level), HSK (intermediate level), and HSK (advanced level). During the speaking test, test takers' speeches will be recorded.
