Learn Chinese in China


HSK Lists HKS 1-6

Recommended Posts


I made an Excel file with all the words from all the HSK exams, one of them on pinyin order and one of them in frequency order.


The excel file exists of 6 sheets, the first 6 are all the HSK levels separately, and the 7th lists is all of them combined.

I have used this list to give myself an impression of where my Chinese is at and how far I still have to go.


Here are the dropbox links where you can download them, I tried to upload them as excel file but thay were too big.


Frequency order:



Pinyin order:



I hope it's of use!

Hi bart.mandarin,

this is really helpful! I was just wondering what was your methodology for putting together these lists? How many exams did you sample?


And have you checked how your lists compare to other HSK vocab lists? For example these lists from the confucius institute? http://www.confuciusinstitute.manchester.ac.uk/hsk/hsk-learning-resources/


Thanks Kevin
