Tips on how to improve Chinese Essay Writing

Talk about your Essay

Essay writing is one of the most dreadful things to do for a language paper. Try thinking out loud! Instead of literally writing the essay out, try to say or explain your essay verbally. This trains you to work through the process of structuring the short in a short time limit. This is extremely useful in examination conditions.

With this practice, you will develop the habit to spend the first few minutes coming up with a plan before writing it all down.

Be up-to-date with trending words

Reading the news is very important for this to be executed. Knowing the Chinese characters to words like ‘Dengue fever’ or ‘Donald Trump’. You just never know when you will need these words in your essay!

Keep some handy catchphrases

These catchphrases also known as 成语 in Chinese. These idioms are easy to remember and add vocabulary marks effortlessly.
