Developing Writing Skills in Chinese has been devised for post-intermediate students who need to write Chinese in the course of their life, work or study.

Suitable for classroom or self-study use, each unit contains a selection of model texts, followed by clear notes in English on the format, style, grammar or special phrases demonstrated. A variety of exercises allow students to practise these writing techniques themselves.

Functionally based, with each unit focussing on a particular form of writing, from New Year's cards to business correspondence, key features include:

* glossaries for each chapter, giving Chinese characters, pinyin and English translation
* answer key
* flexible structure
* variety of model texts.

Written by experienced teachers and thoroughly trialled with non-native learners of Chinese, Developing Writing Skills in Chinese will help students to write coherently, clearly and appropriately in a variety of contexts.
