  1. Very interesting picture! It's a reference to the song “学猫叫” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHbwkZgkBIU). It has a certain "childish" style to it, but I've been told it's directed towards adults.

  2. I would agree with everything @7800 said, however I wouldn't take that as a negative. Some parts of the HSK are not well designed for ensuring you know the material, but if you passed then you passed. It's more an indication of the actual value that being an "HSK2 level student" has. But you're not going to stop here, are you? I have studied in a language school in Shanghai, where people are taking 3 hours of classes per day, 5 days per week, and are immersed. It still takes most students ~6-8 weeks to achieve HSK2 level. @tsitsi has achieved this in 5 weeks doing self study in their own count

  3. I think you've achieved quite a lot, but I'd like to bring your attention to the fact that the HSK is very badly designed. Even if you only know around 40% of what's being tested, you can get a passing grade, and that means very little. There are too many questions in which you have a 50% chance of being right even if you don't read them, some questions can be solved simply by excluding possibilities, some questions have answers that make no sense at all, and some questions only require you to accurately listen to a single key word. In my opinion, for the first 4 levels, if you're not fully

  4. Are you saying you were able to pass an HSK1 mock test with just 20 hours total of learning chinese?

  5. As stated on day 1, this is an HSK challenge and an HSK challenge only, nothing more nothing less. I learn with challenges and this works for me, it won't work for others, I have no interest in learning a language forever and not getting something from it, this is just my way to start a kick start, if you will. And I'm very happy with and proud of my progress. And we are all different, I already have 3 languages under my belt and a few others I've started so not stressed about the different testing systems, at the end of the day if I am able to read, watch, listen, speak and communicate t

  6. Very impressive. If you are able to do HSK 1 already, you should have no problem passing HSK2 by June. After all, HSK2 is the same amount of new vocabulary as HSK1, just 150 more. So maybe you will be able to pass HSK2 after just another 20 hours of studies. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to seeing how you progress in a week or two.

  7. Yes, it's very simple especially the first 25 questions, those barely need thinking at all if you've gone through the vocab. HSK 1 does not test understanding or grammatical structures, just if you remember words and can hear them...

  8. So at least from one aspect of this: 额吉 =ээж= 妈妈* if that helps demystify this slightly. I thought this word was pretty common knowledge? *I see it translated as 妈妈 in my textbook, but other places I see it translated as 母亲 so.... Related note: Didn't everyone hear the song 梦中的额吉 sung by Uudam / 乌达木 a few years back? If not, it can supplement your basic vocab a bit I suppose. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOkULQKNRHM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tktIRYo4wls

  9. Surprisingly, I actually recognized the reference immediately. Thats my go to karaoke song when I am in China! 😆 Can't say who it is supposed to be directed towards, but I remember it was huge on douyin back in 2018. Practically every other video was some person with fake cat ears lip syncing that song... or maybe I made the algorithm think thats what I wanted every video to be 😅
