Genre-Based Language Teaching Approach & University English Teaching for Different Majors



Through the introduction and comparative analysis on the Grammar Translation Method and Communicative Approach, the present paper proposes that under the current Chinese educational circumstances, the two methods should be localized in order to adjust to the characteristics of Chinese college English classroom teaching. By combination and further perfection, the Grammar Translation Method and Communicative Approach can serve as college English classroom teaching methods with outstanding Chinese characteristics, which enable the students to improve their language competence and communicative competence, thus the transfer from teacher-centeredness and student-centeredness to learning-centeredness can be achieved.
Key words: The Grammar Translation Method, The Communicative Approach, College English Classroom Teaching
Résumé: A travers la présentation et la comparaison de la traduction grammaticale et de la communication, le présent article propose qu’il faut contextualiser ces deux méthodes pour les adapter à l’E/A de l’anglais universitaire chinois et aux étudiants chinois tout en accentuant la caractéristique chinoise. Ces deux méthodes, après la combinaison, le greffage, l’amélioration, pourraient devenir la méthodologie d’E/A de l’anglais universitaire à la chinoise, qui contribuera à élever le niveau linguistique et communicatif des étudiants et à réaliser la transition du centrage sur l’enseignant et l’étudiant au centrage sur l’étude.
