A Research on Students' Needs for Follow-Up Curriculum of College English
Jin, Jie; Liu, Hengying; Zhang, Yan
Journal of Education and Training Studies, v3 n1 p116-128 Jan 2015
Increased universities and colleges offer the undergraduates with more follow-up courses with the further reform in college English education in China. An investigation on self-evaluation, difficulty, and willingness of undergraduates in learning English further was made in order to design more appropriate and adaptable follow-up courses. This research shows that the majority of undergraduates are not satisfied with their English level in English skills, especially speaking. Most undergraduates are willing to take further college English courses with the purpose of finding a better job, but they prefer to choose some comparatively simple and entertaining selective courses such as movie appreciation other than some courses for developing skills. The data achieved leaves some implications on college English education, lays some bases for English education reform and provides new challenge for college English teachers.
