The Youth Chinese Test (YCT) is an international language proficiency standardized test by the educational authority of China. It tests the ability to use Chinese language in the daily and study life of primary and secondary school students whose Chinese is not their first language.
The trend of Chinese language learners at a lower age has grown exponentially around the world, with the Chinese learning group in primary and secondary schools showing great potential for development. The number of candidates has increased year by year. By the end of 2017, the number of YCT candidates had reached 623,000.
Since the implementation of the new YCT in 2010, more than two sets of official examination papers have been published in 2010 and 2012 respectively. In 2016, we revised the syllabus and published the YCT Test Outline and Test Guide. In order to further meet the needs of the majority of Chinese learners to learn and prepare for YCT exams, and to cater for the concept of "integration of teaching and learning", " promote teaching by examination", and "promote learning by examination", we carefully selected high-quality test papers from two years of real questions.
This series of "Official Examination Papers of YCT" has 4 volumes. Corresponding to the YCT exam level one to four, each volume contains 5 sets of questions, and is equipped with listening recording text and test paper answers. The listening recording of the test questions can be played online by scanning the QR code or direct surf to the website, or you can download it on the official website of the test.
The launch of this series of official exam papers is intended to provide useful guidance for Chinese learners in primary and secondary schools around the world and as a self-assessment tool for daily learning. It also hopes to provide an effective reference for the teaching of international Chinese teachers.
