The central measurement of proficiency for Chinese students studying abroad is the TOEFL and IELTS. On the other hand, foreign students who want to study in China have to pass the Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK). People refer to the HSK as the “Chinese IELTS”. Many Chinese learners generally don’t take the test from HSK Level 1, but basic learners may directly take HSK Level 4. Today, let’s talk about all the details of HSK 4 in detail.
HSK is the acronym for Chinese Pinyin for Chinese Proficiency Test. Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK) is a national standardized test established to measure the Chinese proficiency of non-native Chinese speakers (including foreigners, overseas Chinese, and ethnic minority students in China). Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK) is designed and developed by the Chinese Proficiency Test Center of Beijing Language and Culture University. It passed the expert appraisal in February 1990.
The new HSK is an international Chinese proficiency test, which focuses on the ability of non-native candidates. . It tests their level of Chinese in communicating in the different aspects of life like study, work, and socialization. The new HSK is divided into two parts: written test and oral test, which are independent of each other. The written test includes HSK (Level 1), HSK (Level 2), HSK (Level 3), HSK (Level 4), HSK (Level 5), and HSK (Level 6); The oral test includes HSK (beginner), HSK (intermediate) and HSK (advanced), and the oral test is recorded.
HSK4 is a primary school level. If you want to get a beginner’s degree, you must get a certificate above level 6. HSK Level 4, here specifically refers to written test level 4 (spoken test is called HSKK). At this level, Chinese can be used in daily communication, and the vocabulary is at least over 1000. We can further improve our language communication ability and systematically express our opinions and ideas in Chinese through more practical communication.
HSK quasi-level 4 should mean having an HSK level 4 ability level but not having obtained an HSK level 4 certificate.
According to the standards of Hanban, HSK (Level 4) tests candidates’ Chinese proficiency, which corresponds to Level 4 of the International Chinese Proficiency Standard and Level B2 of the Common Reference Framework for European Languages (CEF). Candidates who have passed HSK (Level 4) can talk about a wide range of topics in Chinese and communicate fluently with native Chinese speakers. You can find simulated test papers online for testing, and you can check your actual communication level.

Chinese learners preparing for the exam said, “I think taking HSK is very useful. First of all, it is proof of Chinese proficiency, which will be helpful in job hunting. Secondly, it taught me some Chinese characters and grammar that I often encounter in my life. In the past, my knowledge of some words only stayed at the stage of listening and speaking. After preparing for Level 4 or 5, I began to learn to read and write seriously. This gives me the motivation to keep learning. “
According to Hanban data, in recent years, more and more people have applied for HSK all over the world. In 2013 alone, there were 370,000 candidates.
However, no matter whether it’s HSK CET-4 or CET-6, the exam is just the beginning. We must adopt an attitude of endless learning, never too old to learn!
