Unfortunately, there’s no place to take the HSK, YCT, or BCT in Las Vegas. In fact, there’s no official Confucius Institutes in the state of Nevada. There are three Confucius Institutes in nearby states that you could attend: the University of California at Los Angeles (about 5.5 hours away), Southern Utah University (2.5 hours away), and the University of Arizona (about 6 hours away).
|University of California at Los Angeles|
|Address||1100 Glendon Avenue, PH 8,|
Los Angeles, CA 90024
|About||UCLA has the most impressive array of Confucius Institute programs I’ve seen. It’s kind of hard to summarize them all, so check it out.|
There’s a lot of different scholarships available, including options for some people who aren’t students.
|University of Arizona|
|Address||1215 E Helen St, |
Tucson, AZ, 85721
|About||There’s an annual Chinese Language and Culture day that could be worth attending if you’re in town for the exam.|
There’s also, oddly, an annual training workshop for Chinese teachers. I’m not sure
|Southern Utah University|
|Address||351 W University Blvd,|
Cedar City UT, 84720
|Other||Not a ton of information available online. They do mention providing information and consulting services, which could be useful. |
There’s also talks and conferences on Chinese business practices, which could be very useful depending on your career.
I would recommend calling or emailing the people above though, to double-check what’s actually available and when.
What are the test dates for the HSK and YCT?
Now you should double check with your specific in case the exam has been canceled or rescheduled. Institutes have been known to cancel exams if there’s construction on campus or if some other issue has arisen. A simple call should be enough.
