HSK Test Preparation
China's Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi （汉语水平考试）, known as HSK or the Chinese Proficiency Test, is a standardized test at the state level launched by Hanban. This test is used to assess the Chinese proficiency of non-native speakers, including foreigners, those who are Chinese but are abroad and students of Chinese national minorities. HSK consists of six levels, namely the HSK (level I), HSK (level II), HSK (level III), HSK (level IV), HSK (level V), and HSK (level VI). HSK is held regularly in China and other countries each year. Test takers will receive the results for the new HSK issued by Hanban within one month after the test. Certificates of HSK will be issued to those who have secured the required scores.
What are the advantages of HSK Certificates?
(1) A reference for an educational institution's decision-making concerning recruiting students, assigning students to different classes, allowing students to skip certain courses and granting students academic credits.
(2) A reference for employers' decision-making concerning the recruitment, training and promotion of test takers.
(3) A method for Chinese language learners to assess and improve their proficiency in Chinese.
(4) A method for Chinese language training institutions to evaluate training results.

What did the students say?
-- Kazuyuki SAKATA, passed HSK 5 within 2 years.
I strongly believe that speaking Mandarin on a daily basis is the best method of remembering and internalizing the language. There is no better way for me to do this than by calling my friends at SM and chatting about course content, current events, or Chinese media. It has made a dramatic difference in my speaking ability. I am a big fan of topical course content. It really doesn't matter what the content is, only that it can provide a gateway to a lively discussion.
-- David Snowden
I have been using speakmandarin as my main method of studying and practicing Chinese. The ability to ask for specific discussion topics allows me to study the things I really need for my job and helps me communicate better with Chinese companies. An advantage of SpeakMandarin is the quality of the teachers (they can prepare any lesson for you in less than 24 hours) and also the flexible schedule. I have already recommended some of my friends to try speakmandarin.

I have been a Speakmandarin.com student for more than a year. Originally, intended this to be a substitute for traditional classes while on a long trip; eventually, completely switched to this form of studying. Having spent years studying languages (and English is not my native tongue) I can tell a good language instructor. They patiently wait for the student to say something by himself and THEN correct him, rather than speak INSTEAD of him. When my teachers changed on some occasions (vacations, sick leaves etc) the new one always knew exactly where to pick-up.

I find the short lessons help me to learn Chinese quickly, they fit into my schedule whether I'm in the USA, China or Europe. 15 minute lessons are effective and convenient for anyone who has to balance work with learning a new language. The team of Speakmandarin.com is flexible so that I can continue learning Chinese whether I'm at home or traveling.
