Reform of college English Education
As college English education is greatly emphasized with the rapid development of global communication, the defects that exist in the current educational system are open to more criticism. It is widely acknowledged that a thorough reform of college English education should be under way.
Educators definitely should be responsible for the inadequacy of College English Education. It is known to all that interest is the best teacher, but a large part of college English teachers underestimate the effect of interest and keep preaching in class. Besides, “language environment” is needed to learn a foreign language and the lack of it in Chinese universities has hindered the student’s English learning.
Some problems of the students’ learning habits is also the source of the inadequacy. Chinese students tend to separate vocabulary memorizing, grammar, listening, speaking, reading, and writing and therefore their English is also “broken” in this way. In addition, they are generally reluctant to practice speaking. This has greatly contributed to the “dumb English” of Chinese students.
The success of the college English education reform requires efforts of both educators and students. The universities should encourage students to speak English in their daily communications and hole more activities with the purpose of promoting students’ speaking of English. Teachers should focus on attracting students with charms and interest of English in their classes. Students should try to be participants of the learning activities rather than passive receptors. With the collaboration of educators and students, the reform of college English education will surely yield plentiful fruits
Very glad to write a letter for you,my uncle. You know my parents always are vey seriously for me. They don't let me watch TV, make girl friend, and they give me a high goal at my school study. They put me with our neighboor's kids together that let me feels mad. I am really has no mood with that and I don't know how to talk with that. I know you can help me. Please suggest to my parents for me. Let them put down some demand. Thank you for help.
Do your teachers still use traditional techniques to teach you nowadays? A revol- ution in teaching techniques is required now。In the past，we just took it for granted that a teacher' s aimwas to teach the students all that he knew and solve all the problems for them。Therefore，students could mot judge things on their own under this circumstance。Thus students gradually lost the ability to learn by themselves。In addition，they were only equipped with the knowledge that were taught in class and made the same judgement upon every problem which might crop up。Of course，they would find their knowledge not enough to solve practical problems。
So it is time to change the teaching method。A teacher' s goal is to help the students develop not only the ability to learn by themselves but the skills to make judgements on every aspect on their own。It' s not necessary for the students to turn to teachers for help while meeting with difficulties。The first thing is to develop the students' abilities to make sound judgements upon any problem and overe difficulties。
the campus life is really different from what I have experienced in
high school.For instance,I used to lean upon my dormitory teacher to
wake me up on time.But now I have to set several alarm clocks to make
myself could hear them in the morning otherwise I would miss my
class.And then even worse there would be nobody remind me except my
teacher!So the differences are everywhere and I could easily find
them.The change of life is great and it's wonderful:I have more time of
my own and the rights to decide how I live.
