Development of College English Teaching in China under Needs Analysis

Aimin LIANG, Yan CHEN

Abstract


In China, College English is not only a language course that provides basic knowledge about English, but also a capacity enhancement course that helps students to broaden their horizons and learn about different cultures in the world. The development of College English Teaching is a complex systematic program in which several elements must be considered, i.e. needs analysis, teaching objectives, language testing, material development, language teaching, program evaluation and follow-up courses consisting of ESP and Bilingual education. Among all the elements, “needs analysis” is the logical first step and the important base of a sound College English curriculum design. That is to say, needs analysis is the foundation of the development of College English Teaching.

Key words: College English Teaching; Needs analysis; Curriculum design
