hsk 4 listening practice

When you are listening to HSK 4 exercises, are you unable to capture key points or concerned about lack of appropriate skills? Don’t worry! I’m going to give you some tips and advice in working though the HSK 4 exercises. So let’s start from the HSK 4 Listening section.

Section 1- True or false questions based on given phrases.

In the HSK4 Listening part, there are four sections. The first section is a True or False questionnaire based on 10 recordings. All the recordings consist of one phrase, but be careful because the length of the sentence varies. So it’s very important to catch the key word(s) that will alter the meaning of the sentence, for example, "可是/不过/但是", "并且/而且", "不但...而且", "否则", and "还是" etc. To handle these items, you will be required to be very familiar with the vocabulary of HSK-4, and be able to understand these phrases and relation with the sentence given in the question. Further, conjunction words will help you clear the confusion and make the right judgment. You should first read the sentence and get a general understanding. Then listen to the recordings and capture the key words.

Be very familiar with the vocabulary of HSK 4, and be able to understand these phrases and relation with the sentence given in the question. And these conjunction words will help you clear the confusion and make the right judgment. You should firstly read the sentence given and get a general understanding of them in their mind. Then listen to the recordings and capture the keywords.

Section 2- Listen to the recordings and choose the right answer.

The second section of HSK-1 Listening is choosing the correct answer from three selections based on 15 recordings. The contents of the listening are dialogues consisting of two sentences. To handle these, you need to understand the question being asked after the dialogue. Normally, there will be these types of questions:

1. 关于男的/女的,可以知道什么?(What can we know about the man/woman?)
2. 根据对话,可以知道什么?(What can we learn from the conversation?)
3. 男的/女的是什么意思?(What does the man/woman mean?)
4. 他们最可能在哪里?/ 做什么?(Where are they the most possible?)

Basically, the second section is to test your ability to understand the main idea of the dialogue. So you should try your best to catch the verb(s) in the dialogue, which normally carry the main meaning of the sentence.

Section 3- Choose the right answer based on the given dialogue.

The third section of HSK-4 Listening is choosing the correct response from four choices based on 20 recordings. The contents of the listening are dialogues consisting of five sentences.

Before the third section of the HSK4 Listening begins, you should carefully observe the four answers to know beforehand what the question will be like. For instance:

1. If the answers are name of places and the question is about ‘在哪里?/ 去哪里?’, then you should pay special attention when they talk about the place.
2.If the answers are abstract nouns and the question is about the topic of the dialogue, then you should listen carefully to what are they mainly talking about and write some words you have heard and find the connection.
3. If the question is about the details and the question should be asking the time, accompany, feeling of the people, etc.
