HSK Standard Course (Author: Jiang Liping)

《HSK 标准教程》 (作者:姜丽萍)

Authorized by Hanban, HSK Standard Course is developed under the joint efforts of 北京语言大学出版社 (Beijing Language and Culture University Press, or BLCUP) and 汉考国际教育科技 (Chinese Testing International, or CTI). With HSK test papers as its primary source, HSK Standard Course is characterized by a humorous style, familiar topics and a scientific course design. Matching the HSK test in all aspects, from the content, form to the levels, it is a series of new-type course books embodying the idea of “combining testing and teaching, and promoting learning and teaching by testing”. It is suitable for the Confucius Institutes in different countries as well as other Chinese teaching institutions and self-taught learners.

The whole series is divided into six levels matching the HSK test, with one volume for each of Levels 1-3 and two volumes for each of Levels 4-6, totaling nine volumes.

A Friendly Reminder

To take our online courses, you need to separately purchase the textbooks and corresponding workbooks for each level.

In China?

Aside from buying it from a physical bookstore, it may be more convenient to just order them online and have them delivered to your door. Here are some options to purchase online.

Outside of China?

If you're outside of China, you'll need to purchase them online. One option would be PurpleCulture.net, it's a Hong Kong based online store dedicated in providing Chinese cultural and educational products. They stock all of the HSK Standard Course textbooks and workbooks, and provide worldwide shipping. Alternatively, Amazon has most of the books in stock as well.


The official publisher (BLCUP) has finally released the textbooks/workbooks in eBook format (flipviewer only for Windows PC as of now).

You'd have to register an account, then select a textbook/workbook and click on the "eBook: view" above the "Buy" button.

We provide engaging and comprehensive video courses for serious Chinese learners at all levels, from HSK 1 to HSK 6.


We believe that the purpose of learning a language is to be able to accomplish tasks, or functions.  Following a standardized curriculum (HSK) and a practice-centered approach (with language partners), our video courses bring real learning results that equip students in the real Chinese-speaking world.
