An accessible guide to writing Chinese at the intermediate level

This guide is an easy way to add more writing practice to the intermediate Chinese curriculum, helping Chinese learners express themselves correctly on common everyday topics and for common social purposes. It is model based, process oriented, and genre focused to improve students’ vocabulary and sentence- and paragraph-building skills. By providing sample texts with vocabulary, tips, and strategies for success in using those texts as models, this book will teach students to write biographical, creative, business, and personal content.

Qin Xue Herzberg was an instructor of Chinese for nearly two decades at Calvin University. Larry Herzberg is professor of Chinese and director of Asian studies at Calvin University. The Herzbergs are authors of The Basic Patterns of Chinese Grammar and Chinese Proverbs and Popular Sayings.
