Our HSK test for today covers a new type of question you'll find on the new HSK exam
released this year. In addition to the older HSK test's multiple-choice fill-in-the-blank questions, on the new test you'll find questions where you are given both the incomplete sentences along with the missing words themselves. The challenge is to match the suggested entries to the correct sentences. And while this might seem simple, these questions are actually quite tricky.
Do you need to worry about this new question type? If you're planning to take the HSK outside China this year the answer is a resounding yes: the test you take will have these questions on it. If you're inside China and planning to take the exam in 2010 you will still have a choice of which version of the HSK to take. So see how you do on this HSK test and explore our archives to decide which you prefer for yourself.
