Learn Chinese in China

What was your reading speed etc at HSK 4-5?

I wonder how fast your reading speed is (was) when you were around HSK 4 or HSK 5?

Also, how many characters would you /could you read per day?


Currently, I am mostly (90%) reading HSK 4 level texts at TheChairMansBao. They are around 175-200 words per article.I go pretty chill and do check emails etc in between. I also listen to each article's audio at least 2-3x (around 3 min clips). According to CTA, on average, I should be familiar with 95% of the words in the texts (= at some point I knew them, but some are of course forgotten). 

Still, even if I spend 6 hours per day on them, I barely go beyond 3000 characters per day 😥
