An Analysis of the Effective Strategies of Introducing the Situational Method to Spoken English Teaching in Junior Middle School

Jie Li


Modern education theory emphasizes that teachers should consciously create cognitive situations and atmosphere for students in the course of education. Besides, teachers are supposed to reasonably organize and guide students’ learning activities, and lead students to immerse themselves in learning situations, so that students can master knowledge and skills naturally. Practice has proved that the situational method, a modern educational idea, not only boasts distinctive characteristics of the times, but also has guiding significance for education and teaching. Since language is a system of arbitrary vocal symbols used for human communication, spoken English teaching has always been important in the junior middle school English education curriculum.However, the current spoken English education situation in China is far from meeting the requirements. Junior middle school students lack interest and initiative in spoken English learning. In that case, it is appropriate and feasible to introduce the situational method into the spoken English education for the purpose of stimulating students’ motivation in spoken English learning and improving their spoken English.
