I took HSK 6 last December, after completing Chinese Zero to Hero HSK 6 course. This course helped me a lot during the preparation of the exam, I could memorize all the chengyu requested using their amazing dictionary and through the videos that explains all the dialogues from the textbooks. The extra resources that the course provide guarantees a unique and valid help in the learning process.

My plans for the future are improving my Chinese pronunciation and my speaking ability.

Thanks Jon and Ken! :)

Hi everyone! I'm Dmitry from Russia. Some time ago I bumped into some grammar explanation videos on ZTH YouTube channel and found them extremely useful, so I purchased HSK 5 and 6 bundle.

Two month ago I tried myself on HSK test, but leaving the examination room I felt that I did bad and won’t get the results that would satisfy me, so I registered for exam again, but this time I used ZTH course as a base of my study process, within 25 days I completed 18 lessons, spending approximately 7-9 hours a day, and also did some 真题 few days before the test. And the result was beyond my expectation, I got 65 points more comparing to the first test in such a short period of time!

ZTH course works perfect, and I will use it to get HSK 6!

Hi, It’s Noman from Pakistan. I was looking for some other language resources to supplement my studies at the university. It was when I came across CZH YouTube Channel. I found these free preview video unique and extremely useful. So, I decided to buy the whole bundle HSK 1-6. CZH repeatedly emphasis on going beyond the limits of HSK standard course. The resources that CZH shares about listening and reading really helped me to prepare for HSK5 Exam. Since clearing HSK5 exam, I’m working on HSK6 now. Also I would like to mention the new course “Path to Fluency”, the tips and resources available in that course, meticulously gathered by the team, can not be found anywhere else.

I'm Australian and moved to China five years ago. I learned Chinese through many methods including this website and constantly communicating with my Chinese wife.

I have been using Chinese Zero To Hero since HSK 3.

Chinese Zero To Hero gave me a solid system to methodically work through each chapter. I would always listen to the lessons and do the small quizzes before having my weekly lesson with my Chinese teacher, where I could go through any problems I still had. Chinese Zero To Hero would always respond to any questions I had very quickly.

I plan to study Chinese for the rest of my life and hope to be able to read newspapers and understand movies easily one day.

I am a recently graduated student living in the UK and I have been self-studying Chinese for about 1 year now. I first came across the CZH Youtube videos when I was at HSK 2 level and found them really helpful, so decided to purchase the HSK 3 CZH course. I found the videos not only professional but also enjoyable and very well explained. Delighted with the progress I was making I continued with the HSK 4 course, then the HSK 5 course, and within 7 months CZH had taken me from HSK 2 level to HSK 5 level and I can now enjoy communicating with native speakers! Jon and Ken have done a tremendous job at pitching the videos at the right skill level, making you feel like you're stretching your abilities while never feeling like the content is unmanageable. The best part of the courses are their in-depth discussion of the grammar points, which can be difficult to self-study from a book.

2020 has been a whirlwind of a year but the voices of Jon and Ken have been with me throughout and it has been a thoroughly enjoyable journey. I now look forward to progressing from textbook learning and following the tips in the massively helpful "Path to Fluency" course to try and get my Chinese to the stage where one day I could use it in a professional setting.

And the teachings of the teachers here is so perfect, excellent and so soothing to hear. They also teach practically, which means a lot for a student like me. This helped me a lot during the second question of rearrangement in Reading Section, which I was very much afraid of. Also, they suggest you to practice words on Quizlet, I could efficiently revise all of my words on Quizlet itself.

I highly recommend Chinese Zero to Hero. I have used many different tools and methods in my quest to learn the Chinese language. I began using the HSK books about a year ago with my tutor and noticed the tight integration between Chinese Zero to Hero right away. I have completed HSK 3 and HSK 4 with Zero to Hero and plan to tackle HSK 5 this year. The video lessons augment the lessons in the book and provide a way to go back and review a grammar point when I am stuck or when I need a quick refresher. My score on the HSK 4 test is not outstanding, but I had not planned on the writing portion of the test. My goal was to pass the test by doing my best on the listening and reading portions and that is what I did. Join Chinese Zero to Hero and you can do it too!

Ever since I can remember I was into Asian culture. Martial arts, calligraphy, philosophy. I ended up doing a PhD in Anthropology in Xiamen University, about contemporary Chinese society. Here, I’ve studied for a year and passed HSK3, but even though I’ had been studying in a Chinese university, I’ve had some questions about grammar not even professional Chinese teachers couldn’t explain. Then, I found Chinese Zero to Hero – this has been an amazing and comprehensive resource that finally helped me more than any tutor or channel could. Now I’m getting ready for HSK5, and I am 100% certain I will pass with flying colors, thanks to the Jon and Ken!

I’m an IT professional from the United States seriously studying Mandarin for a little over a year now. I first discovered the Chinese Zero to Hero videos on YouTube. I found them very informative and entertaining and I have been using them ever since. This series is a fantastic supplement to Jiang’s texts, reasonably priced, and easy to follow. For me, they were invaluable for squeezing in lesson review time during long drives or on the treadmill. Their grammar lessons are thorough…and I’m looking forward to their newer “Chinese Gone Wrong” grammar clean-up series. It’s a great find.

As an entrepreneur that would like to extend my business to China, I am fascinated to see how fast things go in the Chinese economy. For this reason, I started study Chinese, to better integrate myself in the interactions and my future business in Asia. While a standardized test does not fully measure the knowledge of a language, it can certainly be some milestone. Chinese Zero to hero definitely makes a shift from the quite boring books which is lacking that tiny bit of extra information, to a fully understandable package. My plan is to continue growing my Chinese skills and work towards HSK4.

I've been learning Mandarin since 2016. I thought my basic grammar knowledge is already quite okay, but I was impressed by Chinese Zero To Hero videos because they have helped me understand even the most simple grammar better. Each of the grammar points is explained clearly with entertaining skits at the end of videos. I also like that they don't provide pinyin even from HSK 1, because it trains us to hear and read better.  I have been searching a satisfactory explanation for 就, the bane of my existence. I finally found my answer in Chinese Zero To Hero video.

I bought the ultimate bundle because I trust their course will definitely help me in HSK exams. In 2020, I took HSK 1 and 2 on the same day and managed to get full score for both. Their lessons are simple and easy to understand, even for confusing grammar points. Now I'm preparing for HSK 3 with their course and the textbook.
