摘要: 近年来,高校英语专业的教学受到很多批评。本文就英语专业教学中存在的几个问题进行了反思:一、教育者认识上有偏差,想当然地认为英语专业的学生有很好的汉语语言和文化修养。建议教师们充分认识到良好的母语语言文化修养对于英语专业学生的重要性。二、英语专业学习者忽视基础的语言能力训练,好高骛远,眼高手低。建议学生们除了注重培养自己的标志性素质——语感外,还需进一步改进学习英语的方法和态度,加强语言基本能力训练。三、教学实践中存在某些不切实际的做法,同时缺乏系统性和整体性的思维。建议英语教学中更多地考虑学生的需求和实际,更多地遵从英语学习自身的规律,以达到教学相长。
Recently, English teaching to English majors in Chinese universities and colleges has received extensive criticism from all walks of life. This paper intends to analyze some problems existing in this area. Firstly, there are some conceptional myths held by educators, whose conception is that English majors undoubtedly have high Chinese language and cultural accomplishment. This paper suggests that educators should be fully aware of the importance of improving students Chinese language and cultural understanding. Secondly, English majors ignore basic language ability drilling. They have formed a bad habit of “overreacting themselves”. Besides the cultivation of language sense, the hallmark quality of English majors, English majors should correct their methods and attitudes of language study, placing more stress on basic drilling of language ability. Thirdly, there exist some unrealistic practices, and they lack systematic and integral thinking. This paper considers it better for us to think more of students realistic needs, and follow the rule of study rather than that of teaching.
