So you've been preparing for the HSK test and have cruised through our Beginner and Intermediate exams without much problem. "This is easy," we can see you thinking, slouched back in your chair and clicking off the correct answers like some sort of mandarin-speaking God. Humbled by your prowess, the locals have even started to revere you as some sort of linguistic Deity.The only thing that keeps bothering you is that - deep down - you know the Intermediate HSK isn't the be-all-and-end-all when it comes to Chinese language fluency. That's the Advanced test, and it's considerably more difficult than anything you've taken before. Don't believe us? Try your hand at this sample Advanced HSK test and see for yourself. These fifteen questions are among the most tricky you'll find on China's official mandarin proficiency exam. If you can get perfect or close to perfect on this test, consider yourself fluent and move on to Cantonese.
