Chinese Essay Writing

For any kind of language, the essay is the most difficult thing to do in the exam. Generally speaking, writing articles is just to tell a story, after you make the story clear, the article also is finished. But it also different with speaking. A good article is like a art, is worth for people to appreciate, to taste. But how to accomplish such a good art? I think the most important thing is the three points: attitude, subject matter, emotional.

A good beginning is half done. For writing, material selection and design are not the start. The most important thing still is to adjust their mentality as well. When you decided to write, then dedicated yourself to write, not half-hearted, and your thinking nature won't be upset. Once the train of thought was interrupted, your speed will be slow and the point will be word count. So how can you write down a interesting article with a good quality? All in all, attitude is can decide the success or failure of the articles.

Subject is the biggest problem in our writing. It is from life, but not all people can observe life, experience life. The only point is to write the true things, maybe not so tortuous plots, but can write a really life. Moreover, when you get the subject, there are some tips for students to pay attention:

1. Make the topic request clear: The article should around the topic, pay attention to the demand of genre and number of words, some restrictive conditions and avoid distracting, digression.

2. Determine the center, choose the right material. To conform to the fact that a typical, novel, so it’s easy to attract the attention of people.

3. Make a good outline, determine the general, write enough words.

4. Sentence writing smooth, there is no wrong character, no wrong grammar in article.

Emotion, it is very important. If we compared an article to be a human. So emotion is his soul. Man is not vegetation, when they meet something, there must be personal thoughts and feelings. Sometimes it also tend to have their own original ideas. If you can put your own thoughts, feelings and insights into the article, then this article will be very individual.

It is obvious that Chinese "writing" is different from Western writing. First, of course, is that Chinese characters are pictographs as opposed to using an alphabet to form words. Yet, in terms of narrative structure, Chinese differs in writing pattern, sentence length, clauses, etc. Following are some examples and explanation to help you follow Chinese logic. Master these and you will be able to write in Chinese without a problem.

1. Bottom-up pattern in Chinese writing

In China an article or story often begins with a small problem with the most important elements placed at the end. In the West, however, it is the reverse, especially in news reports. The most important information comes at the beginning of the story with details following and information of less importance at the end. The same approach holds true, as well, for business writing, from email to letters to reports.


2. Short sentences in Chinese writing

It is common to find long sentences in English, particularly in academic writing (yet in journalistic writing shorter sentences are the general rule). Here is an example: "Interest in historical methods had arisen less through external challenge to the validity of history as an intellectual discipline and more from internal quarrels among historians themselves." But translated into Chinese, the sentence will become a few sentences, instead of one: "The validity of history had met external challenges. Therefore, interest in historical methods had arisen less. Internal quarrels among historians has arisen more. "

3. More semantics in Chinese writing

Here is an interesting observation on the difference between East-West language structure: "Sentence structure, the language of the West, is the rule of law. Chinese language is the rule of man." As long as there are no errors in structure, many meanings can often be expressed in one long sentence. Chinese text is the opposite. Every word has its own structure (because it is actually a picture, not a word) and meaning. So each will express different meanings in different sentences.

Language cannot be separated from culture, and each culture has its own logic for sense making. Therefore, learning Chinese language is also learning how Chinese think. Once you can understand Chinese logic, you will have no problem in Chinese writing.
