With the Confucius Institute advertising the HSK exams for this half of the year, I can’t help but look and wonder if I’m ready to take the HSK5 exam. I missed out on the passing score by a few points when I took it last in Nov/Dec 2012. My April 2012 certificate for HSK4 will be expiring in a few months as well. Of course, I’m not really in it for the certificate, though it’s a plus, but rather for the satisfaction of knowing that my comprehension of the Chinese language is still okay.
Of course, deep down, I feel like I’m lacking on so many levels. I haven’t reviewed my grammar books in a long time, and my level of comprehension has deteriorated.
I better hit the books and wait until the latter half of the year before deciding to take the exams.
