A Research on the Down-to-Earth Primary English Teaching in the Context of Education Reform

Tao Pang


With the integration of global economic, English promotes communication among countries and development of international trade. So, as a language, English plays a very important role in daily communication and in accessing to more abundant resources and information. However, in China, English teachers mainly revolved around the textbooks focusing on the grammar rules, phrases and exam-related exercises without thinking about practical application in everyday life in the past. As a result, it had led to the phenomenon of mute English and the widely-believed idea of uselessness of English. In order to meet the requirements of the new curriculum reform (NCR), English teachers should innovate and transform teaching methods, and put those methods into practice. Only by connecting teaching and down-to-earth practicing, can students’ language skills be improved. In fact, not only will English abilities be improved, but also students’ confi dence in learning can be built by then.
