Learn Chinese in China


HSK best textbook

Recommended Posts


Hello everyone! 


I am an overseas Chinese. I went to school here in China  during high school and I received IGCSE Chinese  2nd language  (99%), and attended Chinese literature classes. It has been 7 years since I've had any proper Chinese lessons, I've had a look at the HSK 6 syllabus, did a placement test, and I reckon that I can manage the HSK with some hard work and Chinese tutors. Looking to dust off my language skills, but think I would benefit with some textbooks when I leave Guangzhou in a month's time. 


Does anyone have any good textbook suggestions? I went to the 广州购书中心 and was overwhelmed with choice! Preferably something with answers. 


Thanks in advance!

as above, the workbooks are good but be aware there are a huge amount of extra words in the workbook so it can be a bit daunting. 

I'm not sure how they compare to the actually test.
