Chinese Star Writing Competition

This competition was held by Confucius Institute at the University of Adelaide, Embassy of China in Australia and Confucius Institute Headquarters in Beijing to provide a great opportunity for Chinese language learners to demonstrate their Chinese writing abilities. In 2018, this competition grew in size and was offered to all students in South Australia, Western Australia, the Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory. It is one of the most competitive language related competitions in Australia. We had eight students enter the competition, and seven of them were third prize winners. Congratulations to all of the students who took part.

HSK Chinese Proficiency Test

In Term 4 last year, the Year 9 and 10 students who were learning Chinese participated the Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK Test). This test is the only international recognised unified Chinese language proficiency test. Since 1991, it has been held in 15 countries and regions. It assesses non-native Chinese speakers' abilities in using the Chinese language in their daily, academic and professional lives. The students who get the HSK certificate can officially indicate their Chinese language skills in the world.
