Hongxia CEN


College English is one of the public basic courses for the national unified examination of the network education in the pilot university of Modern Distance Education. With the development of network higher education, some public basic courses for the national unified examination of the network education have been playing a more and more important role in guaranteeing the quality of network communication. As to the current situation of college English in the national unified examination of the network education, seminar on English teaching for all English teachers from the Radio and Television Universities (RTVU) in the province is held annually and vocational English curriculum group was established in September,2015 so as to mobilize the collective power of teachers in teaching. Besides, a provincial questionnaire survey was conducted on the English’s current situation in the national unified examination of the network education. The main statistics of this paper are from that survey on students and partly from the survey on teachers. Through the analysis on the result, problems and reasons are found, which provided the first hand information for finding out the countermeasures and the ways of improving the pass rates.
