  1. I want to thank ViviChinese for making this easy-to-read infographics. My middle school students will be taking YCT level 2 next May. I’m wondering if you could make level 2 related infographics. I really appreciate it.

    1. We are so happy to hear you found our infographics useful! We will definitely put your request in our agenda. We will try our best to make that happen! 🙂

  3. I like it when you also make the infographics in traditional Chinese since that’s what I’m learning. Please keep doing that.

    1. Hi Megan, thank you for your feedback. We will definitely keep making more infographics. We believe those are the great studying tools. However, the HSK tests are only provided in Chinese simplified version so far. For better preparation, it is better for learners to get used to this setting. It is good you study in traditional Chinese. You can answer either simplified or traditional Chinese! 🙂 Happy learning!!
