Implication of Output Hypothesis on Teaching College English Writing

Honglan Wei

Abstract


In recent years, with the development of the research on the Output Hypothesis, many researchers and Chinese
English teachers have paid attention to this hypothesis. Since writing is considered to be a way of output on the field
of second language acquisition, teachers in college have begun to apply Swain’s “Output Hypothesis” to teaching
college English writing. It does work but still remains problems. Therefore, this paper will introduce the existing
problems of applying the output hypothesis on the writing class in our college, based on the interview by
interviewing six seniors majoring in English from different classes in our Foreign Language College. Also, this paper
will provide some suggestions on these problems existing in teaching college English writing.
