Please join us at this workshop designed to promote effective proficiency assessment for Chinese Language Learners. Led by Dr. Xiaoxia Zhou, the workshop aims to familiarize Chinese language teachers with the new HSK test, an international standardized exam that tests and rates Chinese language proficiency. The new exam combines the advantages of the original HSK while taking into consideration recent trends in Chinese language training while making use of the latest findings in international language testing. Topics covered will include the test structure and format, test levels and how they correspond to equivalences in the Chinese Language Proficiency Scales for Speakers of Other Languages (CLPS) and the Common European Framework of Reference (CEF), and the process for registering and taking the test. This workshop is open to Chinese language teachers at all levels.
China Institute will supply lunch following the workshop.
