Below are some tips on how to prepare for HSK:
- Build up Chinese vocabulary in context
A lot of articles suggest you memorise HSK vocabulary, but without context, you cannot make a good judgement during the exam. And memorising words only is boring and can’t last long. Our text book is designed for HSK, so you can learn the HSK vocabulary in some fun dialogues.
- Learn the pattern drills
If the Chinese vocabulary is “brick”, then the pattern drill is the cement to put them together. Chinese has similar pattern drills as English, the basic pattern is the same Subject+Verb+Object. However, Chinese language conveys meaning through word order, adverbials or shared understanding of the context.
- Practise HSK exam skills
Once you learnt vocabulary and basic pattern drills, we will teach you the HSK exam skills. HSK is easier than TOEFL and IELTS. We will conduct many HSK mock exams so you can be very confident with your real HSK test.
