Developing Chinese (2nd Edition)—Intermediate Writing Course (I), following Developing Chinese (2nd Edition)— Elementary Comprehensive Course (II) and Developing Chinese (2nd Edition)—Elementary Reading and Writing Course(II), is designed for intermediate learners who have mastered 2000~2500 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 tasks and improve their writing skills.
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 is in tune with the times, including 28 volumes with altogether 34 books.
Combining the cultivation of integrated language skills with the training of specific language skills in its compilation, it can be divided into three levels (elementary, intermediate and advanced) and five series (comprehensive, listening, speaking, reading and writing), among which the comprehensive series is the bulk and the others are the supportive series. The overall purpose is to develop and improve students’ Chinese language skills, Chinese communication skills, integrated Chinese capabilities as well as enhance their interest and ability in learning Chinese.
