The new YCT test is launched to encourage foreign young students to learn Chinese and improve their Chinese language proficiency.

YCT Structure

The new YCT is an international standardized test of Chinese language proficiency. It assesses young foreign students’ abilities to use Chinese in their daily and academic lives. The new YCT consists of a writing test and a speaking test, which are independent of each other. The writing test is divided into four levels, namely, the YCT (level I), YCT (level II), YCT (level III), and YCT (level IV). The speaking test is divided into the YCT (Beginner Level) and YCT (Intermediate Level).

Writing Test Speaking Test
YCT (level IV)  YCT (Intermediate Level)
YCT (level III)  YCT (Beginner Level)
YCT (level II)
YCT (level I)

YCT Levels

The different levels of the new YCT are similar to some of the levels in the Chinese Language Proficiency Scales for Speakers of Other Languages (CLPS) and the Common European Framework of Reference (CEF); details are as follows:

  HSK (level VI) 5000+ Level V C2
  HSK (level V) 2500 C1
  HSK (level IV) 1200 Level IV B2
YCT (level IV) HSK (level III) 600 Level III B1
YCT (level III) HSK (level II) 300 Level II A2
YCT (level II) HSK (level I) 150 Level I A1
YCT (level I)   80    

Test takers who are able to pass the YCT (Level I) can understand and use some of the most common Chinese phrases and sentences and possess the ability to further their Chinese language studies.

Test takers who are able to pass the YCT (Level II) can understand and use some simple Chinese phrases and sentences and cope with basic level communications.

Test takers who are able to pass the YCT (Level III), having reached an excellent level in basic Chinese, can communicate on familiar daily topics in a simple manner.

Test takers who are able to pass the YCT (Level IV) can communicate in Chinese at a basic level in their daily, academic and professional lives. When travelling in China, they can manage most forms of communication in Chinese.

YCT Purposes

The YCT is intended for students whose mother tongue is not Chinese. The results of the test can serve various purposes:

  1. A method for Chinese language learners to assess and improve their proficiency in Chinese.
  2. A reference for Chinese language training in schools.
  3. A method for Chinese language training institutions to evaluate training results.
  4. A benchmark for students who want to participate in the HSK test.
