The Application of Culture Comparison in English Teaching for Chinese Mongolian Students

Lili ZHAO

Abstract


The Chinese Mongolian students are one of the ethnic minorities. They have specific folk features. Most of the Mongolian students haven’t learned English before. Therefore, the particularity of their nationality and their poor English backgrounds determine the particularity of English teaching. From the aspects of social customs and nonverbal communication, I introduced culture comparison into English teaching. In this way, the teacher attempted to cultivate students’culture awareness and found some feasible teaching methods to improve students’ command of English and thus enhance English teaching effect.
