How to Learn Chinese in 5 Minutes
“I’m too busy.” It’s a phrase we’ve all said a time or two before. No matter what it is we’re trying (or dreaming) to accomplish, it simply feels like there’s never enough time in the day.

Lucky for us busy people, there’s still a way to learn Chinese, even in as little as five minutes per day.
In fact, according to Medical Xpress, studying for shorter amounts of time leads to much better recall than a few hour-long study sessions.
So, how do you learn Chinese without dedicating 14-21 hours a week? In this guide, we’ll give you all the tools you need to learn Chinese in just five minutes a day!
1. Learn the Characters for HSK Level 1
The HSK, or 汉语水平考试 (hànyǔ shuǐpíng kǎoshì), is the official Chinese proficiency test. It consists of six levels, with Level 1 being absolute beginner and Level 6 being native-like fluency, similar to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) levels.
HSK Level 1 is the most basic level and consists of 150 vocabulary words.
These 150 words are some of the most frequently used vocabulary in the Chinese language, making them incredibly useful to learn. Plus, if you want to take the HSK test for career purposes or to work in China, you’ll definitely want to hammer these down first.
2. Download an App for Learning Chinese
Want to know the best way for busy people to learn a language? Downloading an app.
Think about it: We’re constantly on the go, whether it be commuting to work, cooking in the kitchen or browsing the grocery store aisles. And, believe it or not, these everyday tasks are the perfect opportunities to get in a quick five-minute Chinese learning session.
When you have fun study materials directly on your phone, they go wherever you go, and there’s no reason not to use them.
3. Watch a 5-Minute Video
If you’re on a budget, have access to a computer or phone or simply enjoy using YouTube, you can leverage the insanely popular platform to learn Chinese in five minutes a day.
Content creators from around the world make and publish videos to the site on a minute-by-minute basis, meaning there’s plenty of creators from Chinese-speaking countries like China, Taiwan and Singapore.
That also means that it’s fairly easy to find short, timely videos to enjoy and learn from.
4. Incorporate Flashcards into Your Routine
You’ve heard it a million times, I’m sure: Flashcards are a must-use technique when learning a new language. Well, it’s true!
And what’s even better is using a flashcard app that’s designed to help you master vocabulary and remember words for a long time.
Whether you study with flashcards for five minutes every day or five minutes once a week, it will help you improve your Chinese very fast.
5. Find a Language Exchange Partner
The great thing about language exchange partners is… Well, there are multiple things actually.
Language partners are a free resource, can become great friends, give you access to native speakers, are easy to talk to, are accessible from anywhere you take your phone and are a great way to learn Chinese in five minutes.
If you aren’t sure where to find a language partner, there are multiple language exchange apps that will help you.
