Get Ready to Take the HSK

The HSK Examination, known as “Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi” in Chinese, is the standard Chinese Language Proficiency Test for non-native Chinese speakers, such as foreigners, students of Chinese national minorities, and overseas Chinese. The primary objective of the HSK test is to evaluate the level of standard Mandarin that a student has learned. Your HSK Test Score can be used for university admissions and job applications.

Your HSK Test Preparation will be designed through personal study plans which take into account your previous Mandarin Chinese proficiency level and will be tracked to ensure you are ready to complete your HSK test.

The HSK Test has been updated and is now an international standardized exam, assessing your ability as a non-native Chinese speaker in your daily, academic and professional life. The HSK Test consists of six test levels:

  1. HSK Level I, II and III (These levels form the HSK Threshold)
  2. HSK Level IV (HSK Elementary)
  3. HSK Level V (HSK Intermediate)
  4. HSK Level VI (HSK Advanced)

To gain your HSK Certification, you will need to attain the required scores for your test level.

Lea - United Kingdom Learn Chinese Program in Shanghai

The Chinese school was at an appropriate pace and the content of what we learnt could be applied to daily situations which was effective for practising Mandarin. 4 weeks from learning Chinese intensive classes is supper effective and useful for me. I think I will attend GAC's one semester or year University Chinese program in BLCU in 2018. Read More


Wesley - United Kingdom Internship and Chinese lessons

I first came to China for the language specifically and got the chance to go to Peking Univesity Chinese program and study for half a year. I am now currently interning at Vericant, in Beijing China, an IT company focused on carrying out video assessments for chinese students applying to study abroad.

Applying through GAC was the best decision I made while searching for an internship in China. They arranged everything, from finding my perfect internship company to providing a great accomodation for me and much more. They have really been supportive and have always been available to assist me whenever i encountered any difficulties.Read More


Tai - USASmall Class Mandarin Program

My program was one month long; I took the small group Mandarin Program in Beijing. I would say definitely that my confidence when speaking Chinese has increased even after spending just a few weeks studying in Beijing. I had already learned some Chinese before for 3 years back in high school, so this was just a continuation and a chance for me to visit Beijing. Of course the first two days were difficult in class and just a big mess, but I made friends quickly, my classmates were also cool. The teachers were nice and always taught in Chinese, I was okay with this and was even able to understand Chinese jokes in class. Read More


Catherine - Germany One on One Tutoring Program in Beijing

Really happy about my decision of going to Beijing for 2 months in order to prepare myself for the HSK 4! I am pretty sure that I would have never been able to learn that much if I would have taken private classes in Germany. The fact that I was actually going to my Chinese classes and also living in Beijing made me practice the language a lot. I used to speak Mandarin everyday since I was hanging out with Chinese people! Learning Chinese in its country is a much more effective way for students to impove faster. Since you could practice Mandarin anytime, anywhere and with anyone... Read More
