College General English Teaching Reform in Constructing “New Liberal Arts”

Lihui SONG


Since the construction of “New Liberal Arts” was put forward in China in 2018, college English teaching reform has been discussed. With the guidance of the new requirements, we need to stimulate students’ critical thinking, innovation ability, civic responsibilities and some other related abilities. Therefore, we try to carry out the teaching reform of General English in our university in terms of teaching orientation, teaching content, teaching mode, teaching method, teaching assessment and some related aspects. After the first round of teaching experiment, we conducted a preliminary review and reflection, and found that students had made great progress in college General English learning, and the assessment of students’ learning had been more objective and fair.
