Brief introduction of the YCT Language Exam (Youth Chinese Test)

For children under the age of 14 we recommend Young Learners’ Chinese Test (YCT). The structure and the vocabulary of the exam are specially developed to correspond to primary school students’ skills. The next exam date is 16 November 2013. Details are going to be announced here on our website soon.

YCT language exam consists of two independent parts: written and oral. The levels of the written part range from 1 to 4 while the oral part comprises elementary and intermediate levels.

In contrast with HSK and HSKK, YCT language exams are not accredited and accepted officially in Hungary. In other means it cannot be recognized as an official language certificate.
