[Apr 22, 2008]
After four years of successful operation in providing Mandarin language proficiency tests for the learners in Lower Mainland Vancouver, the HSK Test Center at UBC has terminated its function in March 2008. From April 2008, the HSK Tests in Vancouver will be hosted by the newly established Testing Center of Confucius Institute, BCIT. More varieties of Chinese proficiency tests will be offered and more frequent tests will be scheduled. The closest upcoming test date will be May 18th. For detailed information and registration, please go to www.confuciusbcit.com/testing.asp.
We thank all the friends who have helped and supported the HSK Test Center at UBC during the past 4 years. We are very happy that the Center has now found a better “home”! We are confident that the new Testing Center at Confucius Institute will serve our learners in a more comprehensive and effective way.
