A Study of the Influence of Gender Differences on English Learning of Senior High School Students



In recent years, people from all walks of life have paid more and more attention to gender differences. Under the background of new curriculum reform, the attention to students’ individual differences becomes one of the most important subjects of education theory and practice, and the gender differences are the necessary link. This thesis is based on the education of senior high school English teaching, starts with the point of “the gender difference is that the differences male and female students showed in the learning activity”, and puts forward countermeasures for difference teaching, from the aspects of gender differences in English learning in a variety of performances, such as in English learning style, learning memory, learning motivation and the concept of gender differences and in the selection and use of learning strategy. The paper is for the purpose of clearing up the gender difference’s negative impact on foreign language learning and improves senior high students’ English education to a certain extent.
