A beta version of the AllSet Learning Grammar Wiki has published recently. The site says it will gradually expand its content and add more grammar information and sample sentences. The Chinese Grammar Wiki divides its content’s difficulty into 4 levels with emphasis on:

* Beginner (Level A1)
o Basic sentence order
o Suggestions with ba

* Elementary (Level A2)
o “Zai” following verbs
For zai see http://www.chinesetolearn.com/?p=2545
o Expressing duration
o Expressing “a little too” with “you dian”

* Intermediate (Level B1)
o Expressing actions in progress (full form)
o Expressing the Self-Evident with “ma”
o Ba sentence
For ba sentence see http://www.chinesetolearn.com/?p=2303

* Upper Intermediate (Level B2)
o Emphatic adverb “ke”
o Expressing Fractions with “fenzhi”

As a Chinese language teacher, I am glad to see Chinese Grammar Wiki’s emerging which definitely can offer some grammar help for Chinese language learners.
