Abstract

At present, the country is vigorously promoting The Belt and Road, jointly building The Belt and Road, committed to the connectivity of Asia, Europe, Africa and the adjacent seas, establishing and strengthening the connectivity partnership of countries along the line, and achieving diversified, independent, balanced and sustainable development of countries along the line. Therefore, all kinds of projects cannot be carried out without language first. With the rise of the Chinese language craze, the importance of Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (HSK) test is self-evident. Therefore, it is necessary to deepen the research of HSK. Based on the methods of automatic composition correction and text difficulty rating, this paper conducts a quantitative study on quantifiers in HSK compositions. The research results show that the species of quantifiers have a greater impact on the difficulty of HSK compositions. Adding the characteristics of the quantity and species of quantifiers can’t significantly improve the accuracy of HSK composition difficulty rating. However, this does not mean that quantifiers are not important in the HSK composition difficulty assessment. The acquisition of quantifiers by foreign students in composition writing cannot be ignored, because quantifiers are a special grammatical phenomenon that distinguishes modern Chinese from European and American languages.
