Teaching Chinese as a foreign language




Using intermediate and advanced Chinese students as the research subjects, HSK corpus and questionnaire surveys were used to explore the error types in the construction of “X??(Y)+?+Z.” The types of errors can be divided into component errors, relationship errors between components, and collocation errors between components and sentences. The main reasons for the errors are the particularity of the construction, the immature development of construction teaching, the negative transfer of students’ mother tongue, as well as the generalization and avoidance of the target language.
