HSK Centre (Crestar) is the sole authorised administrator for HSK Test (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi or Chinese Proficiency Test) and YCT (Youth Chinese Test) in Singapore.
These tests provide international benchmarking of Chinese proficiency for non-native speakers. They are designed by the Office of Chinese Language Council International (Hanban), China’s language authority, and are are available in over 130 countries globally. HSK Centre (Crestar) has been awarded the coveted “Outstanding Overseas Test Centre for Chinese Language” by Hanban three times consecutively.
HSK tests examine the candidates’ ability in using the Chinese language in their daily, academic and professional lives, and help to build up their confidence in learning Mandarin.
HSK results have officially become the additional point factor in the point scoring system of China’s work permit application since April 2017. HSK results can help applicants get a maximum of five additional points in China’s work permit application and upgrade.
The YCT is designed to assess the ability of overseas primary and secondary school students to use Mandarin in their daily life and studies, and to serve as a professional reference point for students applying for school transfers or school placements.
The HSK Standard Chinese Course adopts a unique Snowball teaching technique, combined with a Task-Based Language Teaching method and Audiolingualism, emphasising on effective as well as fun learning for students.
“Our school has always been encouraging students to take the international exams to determine their Chinese proficiency level. The unique test method of YCT has enriched our student’s learning experience. YCT certificates are very important for our students as they provide them a sense of accomplishment in learning Chinese. Therefore, the YCT is being increasingly trusted and affirmed by students and parents.” – Ms. Xiong Huali, K-12 Principal for Chinese Language and Culture, Canadian International School
