距离12月06日官方HSK 考试只有四天了,你做好准备了吗?

Hey! Are you ready for the HSK exam on December 6th?  It has only 4 days left….

我相信你在经过这一段的努力学习之后,现在已经迫不及待想要大显身手。 你的自信来自于你对汉语知识的掌握程度,词汇、听力、理解等等。“吃透”词汇并不仅仅是摆脱看到汉字却不会读、不明白其词义的尴尬,更重要的是能够辨析词与词之间的区别,尤其是近义词。

I bet you are very excited to show how well you have done in leaning Chinese.  To get a good level score, you have to be confident in your vocabulary, listening, understanding, etc. The point is not only to read or recognize those words, but also to compare them and use them, especially synonyms.

今天我们就为大家解惑 “了解、理解”,“会、能”,这样的近义词辨析。

So here, we are going to figure out some confusing words, such as  “了解and理解”, “会 and 能”。
