A Survey of Culture Teaching in College English

Kezhen LI

Abstract


This study introduces the condition of culture teaching in college English in China by using the quantitative research method. Through analyzing the quantitative data by means of various inferential statistical procedures, and investigating how the students’ recognition, favorite approach, ideas, and attitudes on culture teaching interact and students’ sex-, major-and place-related differences in culture teaching, the results show that culture learning plays a positive part in learning language. The results also indicate that the degree of the satisfaction on cultural learning of the students is varied by sex, major, grade and place. This phenomenon urges that all the language teachers should find suitable and reliable teaching resource in directing and implementing the language-and-culture teaching. Teacher should adjust and develop the existed content-based instruction into a more feasible way and also take on more responsibilities on the students in the process of learning. This calls for further study in the field of culture teaching.
