The following example shows how to write characters by using the WriteAsync(Char) method.

using System;
using System.Text;
using System.IO;

namespace ConsoleApplication
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            WriteCharacters();
        }

        static async void WriteCharacters()
        {
            StringBuilder stringToWrite = new StringBuilder("Characters in StringBuilder");
            stringToWrite.AppendLine();

            using (StringWriter writer = new StringWriter(stringToWrite))
            {
                UnicodeEncoding ue = new UnicodeEncoding();
                char[] charsToAdd = ue.GetChars(ue.GetBytes("and chars to add"));
                foreach (char c in charsToAdd)
                {
                    await writer.WriteAsync(c);
                }
                Console.WriteLine(stringToWrite.ToString());
            }
        }
    }
}
// The example displays the following output: 
// 
// Characters in StringBuilder 
// and chars to add 
//
