College English Teaching According to Students’ Goals of Study

Abstract


Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China attaches great importance to College English, and calls for teaching in accordance with students’ aptitude. To meet the requirements of Ministry of Education, many colleges and universities apply the graded teaching mode. They divide students into different grades according to their English levels, and suit the teaching to the students’ English levels of each grade. However, this mode of teaching has some weaknesses. And because of the great differences among universities and colleges in China, the teaching reforms of some key universities could not be applied to some other universities and colleges. Therefore, the research group carried out a survey in Sichuan University of Science & Technology on the students’ English proficiency, their goals of learning English, views on English graded teaching, responses to the current English course and their views on the reform of the course.. Based on the result of the survey, the research group puts forward a new teaching mode—college English teaching according to students’ goals of study, which can be well applied to non-key universities. This teaching mode could make teaching cater to the students’ personal goals of study, without doing harm to their study enthusiasm.
