The Analysis of the Current Situation of College Students’ English Reading Affection: Taking the Non-English Major Freshmen of Taishan University as an Example

Lei LU, Qun LI


With the definition of the concept of English reading literacy, reading affection has become an important topic in English reading research. Reading affection is an important regulatory factor in the reading process, which directly affects the quality and effect of reading. In this study, 143 non-English major freshmen from Taishan University were sampled to implement an English reading affection questionnaire survey, and the current situation of learners’ English reading affection was analyzed from the three dimensions: reading attitude, affective experience and value evaluation. The survey results show that college students have a certain affective attitude towards English reading, but the overall positive affection needs to be improved.
