Summary/Abstract: The authors present the analysis of Chinese students’ written work in terms of text organisation and language. They show to what extent nationality and culture of the writers determine their style of communication. The factors influencing a given style can be found in the education system, hierarchy of values, philosophy of modern behaviours. The article shows this influence on the basis of four chosen phenomena: mentality and the hierarchy of values, presentation of Poland, presentation of Polish history, the use of stylistic devices. Comparative studies of the organisation of texts and their language can be used in contrastive textology, show rhetorical interferences and the exchange of linguistic and stylistic conventions between languages. They can also aid lectures in foreign languages in teaching written and spoken language.
