HSK was created and launched by Hanban (Confucius Institute Headquarters), an affiliation of the Chinese Ministry of Education, with a primary goal of measuring the foreigners' ability to speak Chinese.
Hanban has provided a short guideline in order to explain to potential exam-takers what to be prepared for. According to it, HSK1 and HSK2 represent very basic Mandarin skills sufficient to have short and simple discussions in daily life, HSK3 and HSK4 are intended for intermediate speakers who are quite acknowledged with Chinese symbols as well. HSK5 and HSK6 prove your proficiency in the language, allowing you to express yourself fluently and smoothly.
