Complete HSK 1 Vocabulary

I call this the complete HSK 1 Vocabulary because it includes over 50 words not in the official HSK 1 Vocabulary. It’s not uncommon to encounter words on the HSK not included in the official vocabulary, like 好吃 or tasty. The test creators feel free to include words and even phrases that they feel you should know, even if they’re not included. That’s why I’ve analyzed official tests, practice tests, and similar tests like the YCT to bring you this complete list of every word you should reasonably expect to see on the HSK 1.

Of course, if you take the HSK 1 and notice a word not included here, please share the word in a comment below so I can update the list and you can help other test takers.
