The standard HSK (Chinese Language Proficiency Test) is now open for registration in MiaoMiao School Community

Dear parents and students,

The standard HSK (Chinese Language Proficiency Test) is now open for registration in MiaoMiao School Community!

HSK is China’s only standardized test of Chinese language proficiency for non-native speakers. The test was initiated by Beijing Language and Culture University and is now held by the Confucius Institute annually in major cities in China and overseas. HSK is administered in simplified Chinese characters. The current HSK Test is divided into 6 grades, from HSK1 to HSK6. HSK’s six levels are designed to fit into the six levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). In general, HSK1 and HSK2 are considered beginner’s level; HSK 3 to 4 are categorized under intermediate level; and HSK5 and HSK6 are regarded as advanced level.

This year, the Confucius Institute in the University of Queensland authorises MiaoMiao Chinese School to host the HSK1-6 tests on 16th November (Saturday). The main campus (Sunnybank) of MiaoMiao Chinese school has been specifically chosen as the test centre for convenience of MiaoMiao community in the southern suburbs. It is a great privilege for MiaoMiao Chinese School to host on behalf of the UQ Confucius Institute, and we take the opportunity to organise these language tests with efforts and contribution from all our community.

MiaoMiao’s Strategy for HSK
MiaoMiao Chinese School deliver the pyramid-shaped immersion programs in teaching Chinese language. These immersion programs have laid a solid foundation for learners to use Chinese proficiently. On the basis of the language textbooks, MiaoMiao School have incorporated Chinese proficiency test content and knowledge points into classroom teaching and final exams. With repetitive practices, teachers could target to the learning problems of each student, in the specific aspects of listening, speaking and writing. The confidences of students in Chinese language have been gradually built up through MiaoMiao’s classroom teaching and after-class practices.

MiaoMiao’s Achievements in HSK
In 2018, two senior students from MiaoMiao main campus were awarded HSK6 certificates, which is highest level in HSK. There were 15 students successfully passed HSK5, and hundreds of junior students who obtained HSK1-4 certificates. This result proves that the our integrative programs and effective teaching methods are very practical for students to improve their language abilities as well as to prepare for the HSK. On the other hand, the annual Beautiful Chinese Handwriting Competition of Miaomiao Literature Society and various domestic and international Chinese Essay Competitions have greatly boosted students’ enthusiasm in Chinese learning. The excellent works of MiaoMiao students and numerous awards of language contests and competitions have once again proven the advanced concept and strength of MiaoMiao Chinese School are in the peerless position in Chinese language education.
