Many students begin to worry after learning HSK 2 because you will start HSK 3 which it is time to learn Chinese characters. But until now, you haven’t learned even one character. What should you do?
It is indeed that you will have problems about Chinese characters but at least you have known some characters. If you don’t know any characters, that means you didn’t make a good study plan.
So when is the best time to learn Chinese?
You should learn Chinese characters when you start HSK 1. But at the very beginning, it is not the best time to learn Chinese. Instead, the best time is when you have learned HSK 1 for some time because you would have accumulated some words, phrases and sentences. Moreover you would have overcome some aspects of pronunciation problems.
So when starting HSK 3, there are only 300 words that you need to master since you have learned the other 300 words before.
But if you haven’t learned any words before and it is only one month before the test, what can you do?
First of all, you need to know these characters.
You can learn these characters from sentences that you can say. For example, “今天天气特别好”（Today’s weather is especially nice!）, in this sentence, there are 3 characters of HSK 1, they are “今天”、“天气”and “好”。 But one character of HSK 3, that is “特别”.
Then try to write every character but not for many times, three times are ok. You should memorize these characters when writing.
Finally, you should focus on some simple characters, such as “本”、“白”、“北”、“多”、“长” and etc. since there are a few strokes. You can only learn these simple characters because you don’t have much time.
After well preparation, you can try self-tests in the given time, just like in the real test.
After finishing this test, you should have a good check to figure out your problems, then solve these problems. You can solve one type of problems if you can solve one problem of such type because many problems are similar.
Now you know how to prepare for HSK 3, right?
