Teaching of Chinese Degree Adverb Synonymous with the Meaning of “very” for Occidental Students at the Beginning Level: A Case Study of Chinese Beginner in Yunnan Normal University

Li Yamei


This study focuses on one of the important

and difficult language points in teaching

Chinese as the second language, synonymous

degree adverbs in modern Chinese language,

aiming at the beginning level of occidental

students who excessively rely on their mother

tongue. The research has been done by

observing a group of typical adverbs with the

meaning of “very” in Chinese language, such as

"feichang, shifen, hen, ting, ji" in combination

with ontology and error analysis and classroom

testing. The paper explores the reasons and

types of errors, and designs the teaching plan

according to the testing results. Comparing the

testing results, it is suggested that compare

with error analysis, language testing combined

with inductive reasoning is more effective in

teaching synonymous degree adverbs in modern

Chinese language.
