What is HSK?
HSK stands for Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (Chinese: 汉语水平考试) which is the standard Chinese test in mainland China. You can take either a written HSK exam, or an online exam. If you want to study in a Chinese university, or work in a Chinese company, this is the test they use to measure your Chinese level. Entry into a Chinese university normally requires HSK 4, HSK 5 or HSK 6.

Ratings and Reviews
Hello! I have a question for you guys about this app. I’ve been recently using this and I want to buy the VIP version to extend my chinese learning, but my mom won’t let me buy it because she thinks it could be a scam and that I shouldn’t buy it because she’s unsure that it’s a reliable site. I tried convincing her that this site has many good reviews and that it should be very reliable but she won’t believe me because I’m young and I don’t know many things??? I’m supposed to be learning Chinese because I’m studying in China.. I really want to buy the VIP version but my mom just won’t let me. You don’t scam users right? I’m pretty sure you don’t. But my mom won’t believe me anyways 😑

Repeats Lessons—Not Worth the Price
I’ve been using this app for about 4 months now, and it can be very helpful for attaining new vocabulary and grammar points. However, there is a glaring issue that only appears after you’ve sunk in a lot of time. They repeat vocab words and terms.
I’ve reached the final unit for HSK 4, and every single lesson has identical vocab words and grammar points. I’ve noticed this with some other lessons too, where words and grammar points will get repeated, but not to this extent, where it’s every lesson for the entire unit. I reported it using the in-app function, and tried to speak with customer service, who brushed me off and then stopped responding.
It’d be one thing if this was a free app, or even 20 dollars. But you pay over 100 dollars to get the VIP (which is really necessary to get any use out of the app—the “free version” only allows you to use it for ten minutes, giving you a small taste of what it is so you’ll buy it. Then you realize down the line that they never fully finished it).
I’ll change my review when they add new words and grammar terms, but as it is I wouldn’t recommend dropping the money for this deceptive marketing.
It’s fine, but i’d keep looking for another app
A few cons:
- at least in the HSK 1 section, a lot of the listening and reading exercises use vocabulary that isn’t taught at the HSK 1 level. You’re just supposed to magically know what those words mean, and getting the right answer depends on you understanding every word
- all of the grammar explanations are written in chinese, and to see the english version, you click a button that translates the text in real time with google translate (which is often not great). So they didn’t bother finding someone who speaks english to teach concepts to english speakers
- in some exercises, the characters are always underlined. it looks like there’s an extra stroke. this becomes especially absurd when being quizzed on numbers
- there are quizzes where you’re supposed to click on the picture that the text or speech describes, but it’s all cheap stock photos and they clearly had a limited budget, so many of the pictures just barely pertain to the description
- when learning new vocabulary, it shows you a word, then quizzes you on just that single word before moving on to the next word. you simply couldn’t forget it that fast even if you had the memento version of amnesia
- lots of different speakers with different accents
- it goes all the way to hsk 6

Hello, thank you for taking out time to send us feedback, we appreciate that. All the grammar explanation and grammar example sentences have already been translated into English. Maybe you can check the "En" button at the top right-hand corner in the learning interface to see if it's turn on. HSK Online is an app that helps students prepare for the HSK Exams, so most students use HSK Online to get familiar with the question types. If you are a beginner, we recommend you can use the Super Chinese app, it may suit you.
We are continue working hard to improve the app's quality. Don't hesitate to contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further feedback, we are always happy to hear from our users 😊
