Complete HSK 2 Vocabulary

I call this the complete HSK 2 Vocabulary because it includes over 100 words not in the official HSK 1 Vocabulary. It’s not uncommon to encounter words on the HSK not included in the official vocabulary. That’s why I’ve analyzed official tests, practice tests, and even similar tests like the YCT to bring you this complete list of every word you should reasonably expect to see on the HSK 2.

Also, if you take the HSK 2 and notice a word not on this list, please share it in the comments and help your fellow students.
