How to Improve Students' English Level Quickly in English Teaching

Dongfang Li


Modern language teaching theories highly emphasize the influence of "listening" on learning and language use. English listening teaching is not only language teaching, but also ability training. Among the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing, listening is the foundation. It is not the only primary way of acquiring linguistic information, but the basis for improving other skills. Many Chinese students consider the listening test to be the most difficult part of the entire test. The obstacles that high school students encounter in listening are various, for example, poor English listening, slow vocabulary processing, and lack of cultural background knowledge. The purpose of this paper is to put forward corresponding solutions to such problems in order to improve students' listening ability.
