Course Description

This Chinese writing course is designed for non-Chinese speakers to continue building up their Chinese reading and writing foundations. It is also a great option for heritage learners, who speak Mandarin Chinese well, but do not know many Chinese characters, to learn the Chinese writing system. For people who have learned many Chinese characters before, but still have trouble reading and writing coherent paragraphs written in Chinese, this course can be an entry point, as it uses the most effective method on selecting what Chinese characters to teach and how to teach them.

Chinese Reading and Writing 2 presents 50 frequently used Chinese characters, and teaches students words and structures made up of a total of 120 characters. This expansion of vocabularies quickly improves students’ Chinese reading and writing abilities, and enables them to tackle longer Chinese texts, such as conversations and mini stories. 

Writing exercises continue to be the main focus of the entire course. And students are advised not to be too concerned with stroke orders. As long as they practicing writing Chinese, they will make remarkable progress. Moreover, students are encouraged to spend time memorising Chinese characters, and there are a few methods they can use. The ultimate goal is to be able to write Chinese characters from muscle memory.

For reaching the maximum learning result, additional Chinese writing exercises in various forms are provided by the teacher on the usages of these 120 characters, such as answering questions, translating sentences, and so on.

On completing this Chinese writing course, students will be able to use all the Chinese characters they have learned effectively, to read more expressive Chinese texts, and to write their own stories and conversations. Learning characters will become a very powerful tool for students to have in-depth understanding of Chinese language.
