Investigate the "Issues" in Chinese Students' English Writing and Their "Reasons": Revisiting the Recent Evidence in Chinese Academia
Sang, Yuan
International Journal of Higher Education, v6 n3 p1-11 2017
This research synthesis collected, compiled, and analyzed 29 academic research articles that were published in China in recent years. It addressed and explored the issues in Chinese undergraduate students' English writing and the possible reasons causing and/or explaining the issues. It was discovered that many Chinese undergraduate students have difficulties applying the taught and learned English knowledge in English writing and have limited writing skills and strategies to write in English due to the negative influence of the curriculum and syllabus, the high-stake standardized tests, and the language environment in many Chinese universities. Suggestions were made to reinforce the understanding of Chinese students' English writing practices in China and in the United States.
