An accessible guide to writing Chinese at the intermediate level

An easy way to add more writing practice to the intermediate Chinese curriculum, this guide helps Chinese learners express themselves correctly on common everyday topics and for common social purposes. It is structured around the MPG teaching methodology for writing, which 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.
