Model of English Teaching for Future Employees in China’s Petroleum Production Industry

Min Guo, Qun ZHONG

Abstract


Model of English teaching in non-native English speaking countries are very important in English Education, especially in the discipline of teaching English as a second language. Therefore English teaching design requires more specificity, especially for special purposes such as teaching English for industrial workers. Experience indicates that the “1+1 model”(one year for acquiring basic knowledge plus one year for site training and practices in oil fields)is an effective approach for teaching future oil field workers. The model follows four basic principles: establishing a target, cultivating standards, designing and following a process, and effective evaluation. Additionally, cooperative teaching and effective learning are encouraged in this model. Transitioning to the “1+1 model” requires not only a change in teaching methods or means, but also a philosophical shift in the concept of English instruction, that is, a move toward the realization of a “student-centered” approach, emphasizing self-study and the acquisition of practical skills. The method we used includes experimental method and interview. The result indicates that English teaching “1+1 model” can supply more qualified future employees for the petroleum production industry.
