Below are some tips on how to prepare for HSK:

  1. 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 textbook is designed for HSK, so you can learn the HSK vocabularies in some fun dialogues. We help you build up a solid foundation of Chinese pronunciation (Pin Yin) and Chinese characters step by step.
  2. Learn the pattern drills
    If the Chinese vocabulary is a “brick”, then the pattern drill is the cement to put them together. The Chinese language has similar pattern drills as English. For example, the basic main sentence structure is the same order “Subject+Verb+Object”. However, the Chinese language conveys meaning through word order, adverbials or shared understanding of the context.
  3. 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.
