The population of Chinese-language learners grows every day and their starting ages are becoming younger and younger. Elementary schools and junior high schools adapt by providing their students with specialized Chinese curriculums. The Steering Committee for the Test Of Proficiency-Huayu (SC-TOP) has taken the mission of developing a standardized Chinese proficiency test specifically for young learners. SC-TOP invites scholars and experts in the fields of teaching Chinese as a foreign language, linguistics, child psychology, and education to develop the Children’s Chinese Competency Certification (CCCC), which is designed for non-native Chinese-speakers between the ages 7–12. The test can help young learners to track their learning progress and to inspire their enthusiasm and interest.
