[HSK 3 to 6] Written and Spoken tests to be combined in 2022!

HSK made the news again!

This time, it's not about the revised word lists (for the moment, the exams are still using the old word lists). It's about the change in exam structure all levels starting from HSK 3 will now include a Spoken Test!

IMPORTANT NOTE: This change will only affect overseas HSK testing sites. Testing sites in China will not be affected.


In Short


Starting from next year, all overseas HSK3 to HSK6 test takers should also prepare for the Spoken Test. The written and spoken part will come as a combo package

HSK 3 + | Beginner Spoken Test

HSK 4 + | Intermediate Spoken Test

HSK 5 + | Advanced Spoken Test

HSK 6 + | Advanced Spoken Test

In Detail


Here's the official notice from CTI ():

If after seeing that letter you thought 'subtitles please', here's a line-by-line breakdown:
