    你好LILI,我叫欧利德,我是哈工大的博士。我只想告诉你真这些课让我记得我第一年学中文的时,真很多事情起来了。。。,。谢谢老师。我还想问你:为什么在阿尔及利亚没有HSK centre???我感觉外国家都必须有HSK centre。这样外国人都能考HSK。。

    1. Lili Hao Teacher

      谢谢你欧利德。Organizations like schools and colleges can apply to be a registered HSK center on Hanban’s website. If you know any organizations that are interested, they can try filling in an application and hopefully there will be an HSK center in 阿尔及利亚! Good luck!

      Dear Lili,

      in your “beginner’s class” you added a “final exam” in the end. I’d appreciate if you’d add something similar for the “HSK 1 class” – in best case a final exam which is comparable with a real HSK-1-test. I think I did understand the grammar well but I’d appreciate more exercise.

      Thank you for your class. I’m looking forward to proceed.
