Chinese Language Learning System

Chinese Language Learning by HSK and CEFR Standards


Our Chinese language learning system uses an architecture of seven modules that are all based standards set forth by both the Chinese Proficiency Test HSK (Hànyǔ Shuǐpíng Kǎoshì) CEFR. While these 7 modules match up with the HSK, we have given our names to each section based on how well you'll be able to use the language after completing the level. Our Chinese language learning modules break down into "Pinyin," "Self," "Surroundings," "Situational," "Stance," "Spontaneous," and "Self-actualized." This means that our Spoken Chinese Course B1 will teach you the same things as HSK 1, which is mostly about learning how to use Chinese to talk about your "Self." Our Spoken Chinese B2 Course uses HSK 2 standards to help you move from talking just about your "Self" to talking being able to talk about your "Surroundings." As you progress through the modules you will eventually go from "Self" to "Self-Actualized."

A confident, fluent Chinese speaker.
