Ideal for learners at high-intermediate or advanced levels of reading or speaking Chinese or heritage learners.From the Back Cover:
For students of Chinese who have already mastered the basics of oral communication, especially students with Chinese-speaking family environments (heritage learners), the ability to express oneself effectively in written Chinese is of great importance. Masterworks Chinese Companion is founded upon the conviction that in order to learn to write skillfully, a student must first learn to read skillfully--not only in terms of basic comprehension, but also with a deeper appreciation for the techniques found in good writing.
Drawing upon 12 short works that are essential to literary culture throughout the Chinese-speaking world, this textbook takes an integrated approach to the complementary arts of reading and writing. Through carefully developed discussion topics, exercises, and special sections on writing-related topics, the author invites students to be thoughtful and creative in responding to the readings, and challenges them to use the readings as models to improve their own composition skills.
This text is ideal for students of Chinese at a high-intermediate level of reading or speaking. Its unique approach makes it appropriate for use either as a primary textbook or in conjunction with more grammar-oriented books such as Taiwan Today and A New Text for a Modern China. All lesson material appears in both traditional and simplified characters
