HSK 1 Official Test

Score: 200/200


I have been studying Chinese as a hobby to enrich my traveling experience and to be able to communicate with my family. I joined Chinese Zero to Hero to prepare for the HSK exam and become familiar with the format. The structure of the lessons allowed me to study part-time without becoming overwhelmed by the content. I took HSK 1 in March 2019 and plan to finish levels 2 & 3 later this year by using Chinese Zero to Hero as my primary study resource.


HSK 1 Official Test

Score: 200/200


During my learning process (and I’m still on it) I’ve met Chinese Zero to Hero. I watched the free videos on YouTube and immediatly recognized what great material it was; short videos, straight to the point, clear explanations and simple examples. But my plans now is change my approach while studying, to make it fun, encouraging and exciting.


HSK 1 Official Test

Score: 200/200


Raised in Canada, I am embarking on a journey to gain proficiency in Mandarin. The HSK1 course was a great way to help me master the material required for the test to achieve my test result. Now that I have passed HSK1, it’s on to HSK2!

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.
