In this HSK 5 reading practice we'll take a look at some conversational topics in Chinese. At this level, Chinese conversation is one of the best ways that you can practice your language skills and expand your vocabulary. When you don't have someone to practice Chinese with, reading can bring you many of the same benefits.
In these example sentences you can find pronunciation and reading assistance as needed. At this level you will likely want to turn off pinyin initially and see what you can read without it. When needed you can hover over the word for pinyin and translations.
Suggestion for study:
Whether you are in China to learn Chinese or for business, you inevitably have to chat with Chinese people. So what topics should you talk about with Chinese people?
Generally speaking, young people enjoy talking about music, sports, entertainment and gossip. “What songs do you like?”, “Who’s your favorite celebrity?”, “How’s the Chinese soccer team doing?”, etc.
Middle-agers and elders enjoy talking about family and health. “What school does your child go to?”, “What medicine should I take for stomachache?”, etc.
