Use this tool to add tone marks to pinyin or to convert tone number (e.g. hao3) to tone marks.

Although you can use the red buttons to add tone marks, we highly recommend you use the number method (e.g. hao3) for speed and placement of the accent above the correct vowel. [Hint: Type "v" for "ü"]
Note: You do not need to use this tool to enter pinyin in this dictionary.

Complete your HSK1 worksheets everyday

You’ve bought the books, the flashcards and the video course, but you’re having problems starting on the path towards studying Chinese and taking the HSK 1 test.

We know tons of you struggle to find the right way to learn Chinese, as well as how to make time every week, never mind every day, to study (hey, we’ve been there too!). We know very few people have time to dedicate 1-hour every day to study. Plus, even if you do have time, many serious language learners say that studying for 15 minutes every day is far more effective than 2-3 hours every week.

My HSK Dictionary provides weekly HSK 1 worksheets designed for students to study every element of a Chinese character. Each worksheet should take you between 10 and 20 minutes to complete. Every day you study your language knowledge will increase without making you feel disheartened or guilty, even if you miss a study sess! 

Every week you study, you’ll get closer to taking and pass the HSK 1 exam!

The HSK is a standardized test that measures your level of Mandarin Chinese. Specifically, your level of reading and writing Chinese characters, but there’s also a listening test, called the HSKK. It’s an internationally recognized certificate and, depending on your HSK level, may help you apply for University courses or jobs!  

You can learn all about the HSK here.

My HSK Dictionary FAQ

How much does it cost?

My HSK Dictionary is a monthly subscription that costs $5.99 per month. That’s less than 30 cents per worksheet!

Why do you only send 5 words a week?

Our HSK Dictionary worksheets have been designed not only to learn each and every character but also to remember their meaning in your unique way. You’ll also learn how to write each character by following the stroke order on the worksheets and by using the animations on our Dictionary. So, while 5 words a week might not sound a lot, the aim is that you’ll know the ins and outs of every single character, not just on the surface.

Is HSK 1 the only option?

At the moment we’re trialing HSK 1, but if its successful we’ll definitely continue with all the HSK levels, 1-6.

How can I track my progress?

Once you’ve started your subscription, we’ll send you a My HSK Dictionary Index, so you can track all the words you’ve studied. You’ll also be able to tick off the areas that you know well, so you know which to return to if they need more work.
