Yaoyao ZHANG

Both China and Japan are in Asia, so there are many similarities in education that can be borrowed from each other.

In this paper, documentation method, comparison analytic method and logic reasoning are used to study Chinese and Japanese college English education which includes faculty, student source, students’ attitude, instructional objectives and educational evaluation. The result makes a reference to the college English education reform in the future. It also helps to improve the English teaching method and the quality of teaching.
