9780415678896: Developing Writing Skills in Chinese

Developing Writing Skills in Chinese has been devised for post-intermediate students who need to write Chinese in the course of their life, work or study.

Each unit covers a specific style of writing and is reinforced with a rich selection of model texts. All texts are followed by supporting notes examining the formats, styles, grammar structures or special phrases featured. A wide variety of exercises are featured throughout, and each unit concludes with a helpful glossary given in Chinese characters, pinyin and English translations. An answer key is also included in the back of the book.

The following writing styles and genres are covered:

  • Personal correspondence―greetings and condolences, explanations and apologising, making arrangements and keeping in touch
  • Formal writing―announcements and adverts, letters of enquiry and application, business correspondence, developing an argument, facts and data
  • Narration―story narratives, reporting speech, exemplifying and summarising
  • Description and comparison―outlining people’s characters, physical attributes and appearance, places and weather

This new edition has been comprehensively revised and updated throughout. It includes a brand-new chapter on narratives and there is new coverage of digital communication methods such as text messages and emails. An additional English-Chinese glossary is also available for free download at http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415678896/

Developing Writing Skills in Chinese will help students to write coherently, clearly and appropriately in a variety of contexts. It is suitable for both classroom and self-study use.
