Fivehundred Ateneans are all set to take the standardized test in Chinese language today, October 17, at the Ateneo de Iloilo-Santa Maria Catholic School Gym in Mandurriao, Iloilo City.
The examinees--all coming from Grades 3, 5, and 8--will take the Chinese proficiency tests (HSK and YCT) that will be administered by Hanban, an agency of the China government. This is the school's third year of testing as part of its benchmarking initiative on standard Chinese language proficiency.
ADI-SMCS is the only Jesuit Chinese-Filipino school in Western Visayas. Founded by the Jesuit missionaries from China, the school is set to celebrate its 60th diamond jubilee in 2018. /(Herman Lagon/Magis)
