76. 第二节 书面表达(25分) One possible version:
I am glad that you are interested in Chinese culture and eager to explore more about it. In your letter ,you asked me for some advice on what elective course you should take in this term. The following is my advice.
I think the Ancient Poetry is your best choice. By learning Chinese ancient poems, you can have an extensive(广泛的) knowledge of history and culture in ancient China. Also, you can feel the charm of the language by reading poems, which is sure to help to improve your Chinese. To follow the course well, you’d better read and recite as many poems as possible. Besides, it is a good idea to search for related background knowledge so that you will fully understand the conception of poetry.
What you do think of the course? I am sure you will have a lot of fun from it.
