Developing Chinese (2nd Edition) is a set of nationally planned textbooks for higher education during the “Eleventh Five-Year”. Based on the well-designed structure of the first edition, this edition adds more elements in tune with the times.
Developing Chinese—Intermediate Writing Course (II), following Developing Chinese— Intermediate Writing Course (I), is designed for intermediate learners who have mastered more than 2500 frequently-used Chinese words. It has altogether 15 lessons, including the following teaching procedures in class, i.e., “Comment and appraise the compositions written last time”, “Read the model composition”, “Analyze the model composition”, “Writing practice” and “Write a composition after class”, with each procedure providing the teaching time for teacher’s reference. Centering on the focus of the training of writing, each lesson provides a model composition with detailed and holistic analyses of the model composition and summarization of the key words or structures of the lesson. Through abundant writing practice, it teaches students to gradually master the key words or structures, and then carry out the writing task and improve their writing skills.
