Business Chinese Test (BCT)
The BCT, commissioned by Confucius Institute Headquarters (Hanban), is an international standardized test of Chinese language proficiency focusing on assessing non-native Chinese speakers’ abilities to use the Chinese language in real business or common working environments and evaluating the language tasks they are able to complete. It aims to provide references for companies to recruit and select employees, for schools and training institutions to organize teaching activities, and for learners to evaluate themselves.
The BCT, as a test series, consists of three independent tests:
BCT (A) - which is oriented towards beginners, is designed to examine test takers’ ability to communicate in Chinese in daily life and during basic business activities.
BCT (B) - which is oriented towards intermediate and advanced learners, is designed to examine test takers’ ability to communicate in Chinese during complex business activities.
BCT Speaking Test - which is oriented towards learners of all levels, adopts the form of a computer-based test as well as personalized and targeted questions to examine test takers’ ability to complete various communicative tasks by using spoken Chinese.
