1. Intro to the HSK 5 Test

The HSK 5 is the second-highest level of the Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi. It includes a very respectable 2500 words and is by not a small task to complete.

This level of the Chinese Proficiency Test is designed for learners who can read newspapers and magazine, and are able to understand movies. As such, it corresponds to a high-intermediate level of Mandarin.

To find out which apps you can use to speed up your Mandarin learning, check out this blog post.

2. How Hard is the Test

Like lower levels of the HSK, the fifth level doubles the amount of vocabulary a learner needs to know. However, at this point, that means 1300 new words from the HSK 4.

Luckily, since the level corresponds to being able to understand real Chinese-language materials like movies and TV, you can use these kinds of readily available resources to practice your listening skills. In other words, it’s time to go beyond just textbooks and start experiencing real-life Chinese.
