The (HSK) Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi is the Chinese version of TOEFL (or if you don’t know TOEFL, it’s a test of English for non native speakers), and it basically tests how good you are at Chinese at six levels from one (the easiest) through six (the most difficult). If you’re thinking about expanding to the Chinese market for persona, professional or business reasons, the HSK is definitely something for you.

Disappointed in the support

I loved this app. Used it every day! Then I went over to a new phone and my purchases cannot be restored. Then I try to contact support and there is none. The whole app is basically shut down, and glitching out after I spent $20+ on their product.

It has potential...

I was hoping it would have sound (as in it would sound out the words being learned) but it doesn't seem to have that feature. Also, the ads causes this game to freeze up at times.. and I didn't see a way to make a purchase in order to stop the ads.

User-friendly, effective

Trying to learn characters and not rely so much on pinyin. This app has been super simple and easy. I'm picking up characters pretty quickly. I was tempted by other apps cause they're cheaper, but the previews seemed clunky. Very happy. Got the all bundle pack.
