HSK 1 Vocabulary Test

HSK 1 Vocabulary Test

Need a quick easy way to test your HSK 1 Vocabulary?

Here at LTL Mandarin School, we are no strangers to the HSK exam. We’ve helped over 5000 students in their language journey. Most of our students sit a HSK exam to help understand what level of Chinese they have. This is also a great way for employers to understand your abilities.

For someone who has passed a HSK 1 exam, they would be able to express very basic everyday phrases. Also, they would be able to introduce themselves and answer questions like where they live, who they know and the things they have. Want to know more about the other HSK levels?


This is a HSK 1 vocabulary test. Meaning all you can test is your ability to recognise the Chinese characters and/or pinyin and translate it back to English.

Why take a HSK vocab test?

Well, why not?

To pass HSK 1 you will need a score of 60%. By the time you finish this HSK 1 vocabulary test, you’ll know if you know more or less than 60% of the vocabulary in the exam.

Of course, a 60% score here doesn’t ensure a 60% score in the real exam. Instead, use this a gauge as to how confident you should be when entering the exam. The higher the better!

A HSK 1 and HSK 2 are the lowest levels and only require listening and reading and use pinyin and Chinese characters. From level 3 and above you lose the safety net of the pinyin.

When you’re done with the HSK 1 vocabulary test check out our pinyin translator!

When it comes time to writing Chinese characters on your phone. Most people choose to write in pinyin. Find out how you can get started with a pinyin keyboard!

This is a simple HSK 1 vocabulary test. Meaning you can test your knowledge of the 150 words you’ll come across in the HSK exam.
