HSK1 (Self-Study) (HSK1)


Description

Start learning Chinese -- in Chinese!

This beginner course is specially designed for those who want to learn Chinese from the very start in a systematic way. No background knowledge is required. We'll show you everything step by step.

Each of the 30 lessons in this course uses a real-world conversation to teach you a topic through a combination of video lessons, interactive exercises, and cultural articles. By the end of the course, you will be competent at HSK-1 level Chinese (official Chinese Exam Level One).

Based on our 10+ years of experience teaching Chinese, we believe the best way to improve your listening and speaking skills is to learn Chinese by listening to Chinese. Most other courses explain the language in English so you end up spending more time listening to English than Chinese!

**Course Info**
Level: Total Beginner
Duration: 90 days after payment
Learning Pace: 3~4 lessons per week (3~4 hours per week)

**Course Content**
**88 video lessons for self-paced study**
Each video is 5~15 minutes long so you could finish one during a coffee break. All videos are presented in Chinese with English subtitles because we believe the key to learning a language is to maximize your language exposure. The instructors speak in Chinese at an appropriate speed so you can follow along.

**500+ interactive questions**
Practice makes perfect. That's why we provide you with a set of interactive exercises after each video lesson. It should take 5~10 minutes to finish each set of 2-3 exercises.

**30 articles explaining Chinese culture**
Cultural expectations are an important part of communication in a different language. We provide articles to explain 30 topics so you can learn the differences between China and other countries.

Look forward to seeing you in class!
