Did the content of HSKK change as well? The FAQ doesn’t really answer that, other than saying it is now mandatory.

Also, is there a list of source languages for the translation/interpreting exam? I’m wondering if speakers of minority languages will be disadvantaged.

We don’t know @Ben-Mandarin-HSK_5 - we just publish what we see from the HSK and Hanban which is typically opaque.

I’d imagine there will be changes if I’m guessing but don’t quote me on that.

Soon as we know, we’ll inform :slight_smile:


Will there be HSK 7-9 flexiclasses too?


We are currently working on HSK 6 Flexi Classes and will continue from there.
What’s your current level? HSK 7-9 are going to be very high
