Based on the basic connotation of ecolinguistics and the current situation of English language teaching in China, this study attempts to explore the ecological English teaching mode, abide by the law of language teaching, and analyze various factors in it. We regard the process of English learning as a complete ecological process, focus on English teaching and explore approaches from an ecological perspective so as to realize the significant integration of English education and the improvement of students’ learning ability.
