7. Writing practice. Students will have one writing assessment per unit as homework. The instructor will use discussion to stimulate students to start forming their own opinion on the topic in question, while concretely offering the main points in every paragraph and in the end coming up with a writing example. Using writing exercises can help students get familiar with structures that are often seen in written Chinese, including describing a phenomenon, narrative writing, expressing needs, describing flavors and feelings, describing people, etc.
