Teaching English as a Second Language
Along with the significance of learning English has been emphasized by Chinese government for more than thirty years, more and more Westerns who mostly came from the U.S and England were welcomed to teach English in China. However, most of them are not qualified to teach, and they are not well-prepared before teaching according to author’s observation, which make students lose their interest in learning English eventually. Moreover, these foreign ESL teachers follow the activities and exercises in the textbook step by step while teaching, which is very dull and monotonous. In the literature review, the factors that might influence and cause this problem are analyzed and summarized. The literature review includes the English educational background and its existing problems in China, the benefits and problems by attending foreign EFL teachers’ class, and factors affect effective learning.
Hence, the primary purpose of this handbook is to provide communicative, engaging, and innovative lesson plan formats for these novice teachers so that they can teach effectively in order to solve the problem. This handbook is significant because it enables novice native speaker teachers in China to teach effectively, which will lead to improving English language acquisition by the students.
