Course Summary

HSK 2 Revision and Practice is to support those learners who are preparing for the HSK 2 test. Learners will have a total of 15 direct contact hours over the period of two weeks. This course is composed of three parts - mock tests, revision and practice. In this course, learners will have the opportunity to take six simulated tests to help them understand the structure of the HSK 2 test. Revision is based on the mock tests where the teacher will identify the individual needs of students and suggest the necessary test skills. In addition to the mock tests and revision, 300 HSK 2 vocabulary and key grammatical structures will be reviewed and practised in this course.

Teaching method(s)

The class is structured in two stages. A student-centred learning and teaching method is applied in the first stage. A simulated test environment is created to encourage students to familiarise themselves with the real test on their exam day. After the mock test, the teacher will go through the paper. This will be a clinic study style in order to identify the areas students need to improve, and the teacher will provide the learners with the strategies of dealing with scenarios similar to the test.

The second stage applies a teacher-centred method. The teacher will go through the 300 HSK 2 vocabulary and focus on some common grammatical problems that arise among Mandarin language learners.
