A Dictionary of 5000 Graded Words for New HSK is mainly targeted at readers who are going to take New Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK). It is also set of reference books indispensable for Chinese language learners at various levels. This set of dictionaries, with 5000 graded words prescribed in the Outline of the New HSK (Levels 1-6), is divided into three volumes and intended for takers and students at different levels, namely A Dictionary of 5000 Graded Words for New HSK (Levels 1, 2 & 3), A Dictionary of 5000 Graded Words for New HSK (Levels 4 & 5), and A Dictionary of 5000 Graded Words for New HSK (Level 6).
The formats of the three volumes are differentiated based on the various levels of Chinese words and actual situations of students. Among them, A Dictionary of 5000 Graded Words for New HSK (Levels 1, 2 & 3) is annotated in English, i.e., all the sample sentences are provided with Chinese pinyin and English translations, so that beginners can compare, comprehend, imitate and memorize the words without much difficulty. The entries in namely A Dictionary of 5000 Graded Words for New HSK (Levels 4 & 5) are annotated in Chinese and English. Chinese pinyin is provided for the sample sentences at Level 4, but not for those at Level 5, to ensure the transition from pinyin to characters. The sample sentences in this volume are no longer annotated in English to develop students’ Chinese thinking ability. In namely A Dictionary of 5000 Graded Words for New HSK (Levels 6), the entries are only annotated in Chinese characters, and all the sample sentences are written in Chinese characters without using pinyin any more, to develop students’ ability of using Chinese independently.
All the words used in the annotations and sample sentences in this series are basically the words prescribed in the Outline of the New HSK, which has brought great convenience to Chinese language students – they don’t have to consult new words in other dictionaries. The sample sentences are according to the concurrent criterion of being frequently used collocations and commonly used grammar patterns, and are colloquial, communicative, practical and typical.
