Posted on: Apr 23, 2018

The Centre for Chinese Studies  (CCS) administered the Chinese Language Proficiency International Test (HSK) on Sunday April 22, 2018 at CUE.

The HSK is an international standardized exam that tests and rates Chinese language proficiency.

HSK level 1 to level 6 is equivalent to A1 to C2 level in CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). The levels of the HSK correspond to the levels of the CEFR as follows:

HSK Vocabulary CEF
HSK (Level VI) Over 5,000 C2
HSK (Level V) 2500 C1
HSK (Level IV) 1200 B2
HSK (Level III) 600 B1
HSK (Level II) 300 A2
HSK (Level I) 150 A1

12 participants from post-secondary institutions and the public challenged HSK test, among which 5 are from CUE, including students from CHIN 102 taught by Dr. Xinxin Fang and Chinese Course for Public taught by Ms. Rachel Wang. All the CUE students passed their tests and received International Certificates for Chinese Language Proficiency.

Congratulations CUE Chinese learners! Thank you Hanban, Confucius Institute in Edmonton, and the CUE IT department (especially Mr. Dante Macasaet! ) for your support and making this test run smoothly the first time at CUE.
