  • FACTORS TO BE CONSIDERED BEFORE IMPLEMENTATION OF LEARNER TRAINING

    <正> In recent years,characteristics of the good lan-guage learner have been identified.It has been pro-posed that learning strategies based on these character-istics can be taught to students and a number of mate-rials for learner training are available.However,published data and my research indicate that successin language learning may be more complex than suchan approach would suggest.Attempts to translate thetheory behind learner training into practice have pro-duced only qualified success.Among some of the fac-tors complicating the implementation of learner train-ing are motivation and attitudes,the cultural or edu-cational background of students,students'andteachers'beliefs about language learning,and cogni-tive styles.Therefore,teachers should approach theimplementation of learner training with caution.

  • ATTENTION TO VOCABULARY DEVELOPMENT IN READING:QUANTITY AND QUALITY

    <正> It has long been argued that little or no classroomattention is given to vocabulary(Carter,1987;Zim-merman,1997),whereas the opposite might be saidof Chinese tertiary English majors.But problems stillremain:Does more time spent on vocabulary teachingand learning prove effective?Does more attentionneed to be paid to the quality of teaching and learningof vocabulary?To answer these questions,I argue inthis article for a balance of quality and quantity of at-tention to vocabulary development.In the first partof the article,I present five common procedures invocabulary teaching and learning in Chinese collegesand universities and analyse the reasons for the low ef-ficiency in vocabulary teaching and learning.In thesecond,I put forward three techniques—a semanticmapping activity,creating meaningful contexts andusing an integrated approach in teaching and learningvocabulary.

  • INTEGRATION OF TRADITIONAL CHINESE WRITING AND PROCESS WRITING APPROACHES IN TEACHING EFL WRITING

    <正> This paper adopts a pedagogical approach to theteaching of English writing to EFL learners of interme-diate or advanced level in China.The teaching ofwriting has been a problem to Chinese EFL teachers fora long time.On the one hand,they want to make anattempt to adopt fashionable and effective Englishwriting approaches,like process writing.On the otherhand,they are frustrated by the traditional Chinesewriting method.Some of our language educators arealways struggling against the influence of our tradi-tional Chinese writing method.A negative attitudetowards our mother tongue writing approach has beenestablished or accepted by most of our EFL teachers,which result in the EFL learners'panic in their Eng-lish writing course because they are afraid of being ac-cused of writing a Chinese composition in Englishwords.Needless to say,this kind of teaching stylecannot be effective and is frustrating instead.The au-thor presents an integrated and practical solution tothis problem and discusses the applicability of the ap-proach.The author discusses how we can effectivelyintegrate the traditional Chinese writing method andthe popular process writing approach in teaching Eng-lish writing.

  • LEARNING TO WRITE FROM EACH OTHER:A PRACTICAL GUIDE FOR GROUP REVISION IN CLASSROOM

    <正> Group revision has proved to be a very importantstep in process writing and yet it has not receivedmuch attention to in English teaching in China.Thispaper explores the problems related to peer group revi-sion in China,and provides suggestions for solving theproblems and a practical guide for group revision.In teaching writing to English majors in ShanxiTeachers'University in China,the author found aproblem which is common to all students in China.Though teachers have emphasised the importance ofrevision in writing and given students time to revise,students seem to benefit little from it.Later,withfurther study and experiments,the author found thatpeer group revision is an effective activity in helpingstudents benefit from revisions and improve theirwriting.Research on the process of composing emphasis-es both the role of revision in the evolution of thetext and the roe of feedback in the teaching andlearning of writing.Much research has been done onthe different aspects of peer group revision(Nelsonand Carson,1998;Villamil & Guerrero,1996).Based on these findings and the author's own experi-ence,this paper is meant to provide a practical guideto how to ensure effective peer feedback and conse-quent revision.

  • TEACHING OR TESTING:SOME CONSIDERATIONS ON TEACHING LISTENING FOR NON-ENGLISH MAJORS AT COLLEGE LEVEL

    <正> Listening comprehension has been a focus ofteaching second language for many years in China.However,there are many problems in the practicallistening class,such as a distorted listening motiva-tion,a lack of sufficient and authentic input and acorresponding neglect of metacognitive awareness oflearning in actual teaching.In fact,what we are do-ing in the listening class is to test rather than to teach,to foster the passive receiver rather than the activelearner.This article analyzes these problems from the-oretical perspective,speculating on the limitations interms of the comprehensible input,the affective filterand metacognitive awareness.Then,based on theauthor's teaching experience,it provides some sugges-tions to solve the present problems.It suggests what isneeded in teaching listening is careful consideration ofpre-,during and post-listening tasks incorporatingboth the top-down and bottom-up processes.

  • A DILEMMA FOR LANGUAGE TESTERS IN A NETWORK AGE

    <正> With the rapid development of silicon chip tech-nology,web-based instruction(WBI)and computer-ized adaptive testing(CAT)will be the new trends inthe field of language teaching and testing.We assumethat only when teaching and testing share the sameview about the nature of language and language learn-ing can testing exercise a beneficial backwash effect onteaching.However,WBI and CAT prove to be basedon opposite theories of language and language learn-ing.While WBI believes in constructivism,CAT cor-responds to structuralism and behaviorism.This situ-ation places language testers in a dilemma,for if theyfollow the trend,testing will go against teaching.Butif they give up CAT,it is very difficult to substituteanother testing system possessing so many advantages.This paper illustrates in detail why WBI and CAT areto become the new trends in teaching and testing,ex-plains clearly the discrepancy between WBI and CAT intheory and their objectives and finally attempts toprovide a solution to help the language testers out ofthe dilemma.
