This course is part of a Specialization (series of courses) called Learn Chinese: HSK Test Preparation.

Nǐ hǎo! 你好!Welcome to Chinese for HSK Level 1 - a Chinese course for beginners. My name is YU Bin. I am very happy to meet you here! HSK stands for Hànyǔ (Chinese) Shuǐpíng (level) Kǎoshì (test), which is the most important Chinese proficiency test in use today. It assesses non-native Chinese speakers’ abilities in using Chinese in their daily, academic and professional lives. Chinese for HSK Level 1 is the first part of the 6 levels and assesses test takers’ abilities in the application of everyday Chinese. It is the counterpart of Level 1 of the Chinese Language Proficiency Scales for Speakers of Other Languages and the A1 Level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. You will learn:  30 video lectures with dialogue role plays by PKU students;  More than 150 commonly used words;  Around 50 key grammar points;  New words and texts via audio;  Quizzes for each lesson and HSK test papers;  Videos for 70 basic Chinese characters (optional);  Supplementary materials about China (optional). In short, the course covers the four skills although only listening and reading are tested in HSK. At the end of the course, you will be able to understand and use simple Chinese phrases, meet basic needs for communication and possess the ability to further your Chinese language studies. Have a fantastic journey of Chinese learning. For more information about HSK please visit: http://english.hanban.org/node_7581.htm.

hsk level in 5 reviews

Grammar is also included according to HSK level 1 I guess.

It does exactly what it says; prepares you for Chinese for HSK Level 1.

The part that I like the most its the listening section, the other Chinese courses don't have that and like the title of the course this is a great step to get to know the HSK test from 1 - 3.2 here with Pekin University Have completed HSK Level 1 and have benefited much from this Course.

I wish to proceed t o HSK Level 2.

Some good material overall, but the notes are not correctly formatted, tests are not formatted that well, lessons are not that clearly structured Ce cours me permet de me familiariser l'audition ainsi que l'écriture des caractères chinois.Merci beaucoup à l'équipe HSK Level1 ainsi que la professeure Yu Bin pour le contenu et les ressources.

A great course for starting to learn Chinese with the additional goal of learning to pass the important HSK level 1 proficiency test.

Well structured and adaptable to suit different needs, levels and availability.

The course is well structured so that it is always interesting to follow, you grab most of the 150 HSK 1 words in a way that does not feel awkward (Peking University did a great job grouping them) and the basic grammar without actually studying it (i.e.

Well structured and very interesting.

vocabulary and grammar in 3 reviews

All the vocabulary and grammar you need to pass the HSK1 test is also covered.

This course is great for gaining a solid foundations of the Chinese language, as it covers the basics of the characters and tones in the first week, from then on each week goes with fresh lecture sessions that increase the vocabulary and grammar lessons.

There's a lot of vocabulary and grammar.
