Learn Chinese in China


recommended novel to prepare for the HSK6 exam?

Recommended Posts


I fully believe that anyone who has read Shakespeare will pass an English exam, but I think you get cause and effect backwards with that. Although I haven't passed any English exam except for the Dutch 高考 and never managed to make it to the end of a Dickens novel, so what do I know.


Seconding recommendations for 活着 and 圈子圈套. Also search for threads like 'what should I read as my first Chinese novel', you might find some good recommendations there. Good luck on the exam!
