V part five: conclusion
With the reforms and development in all walks of life and the carrying out of the opening policies to the outside world in China in recent years, the traditional grammar-translation method of the foreign language teaching has been found unable to keep pace with the times. This has given rise to many new thoughts and concepts of it. As a result, the communicative approach is getting more and more widely used in Chinese middle school English classrooms. The application of it is based on the view that English should be taught as a communicative tool , not merely a kind of the knowledge of language, In this case, the students’ listening ability must be the most important thing for teachers to improve. However, it is a very difficult job. How can we manage it? This is the very subject I am to deal with. Here in my thesis, some issues related to improving senior students’ listening ability in Chinese middle school classrooms are to be discussed in the following five parts.
