Lectue by Prof. Peng Xuanwei on Disciplinary English Study Problems Analysis
At 9 am on May 9th, Professor Xuanwei Peng, director of the Center for Functional Linguistics of Guangdong University of Foreign Studies, Professor of Collaborative Innovation Center for Foreign Language Research & Service, Chairman of the Professional Committee of Functional Linguistics of the Association for Comparative Studies of English and Chinese, visited our school and gave a wonderful lecture entitled "Disciplinary English Study-Problems Analysis of High-level English Education in China and its Basic Countermeasures" in the conference room 1200.
At the beginning of the lecture, Professor Peng gave a simple self-introduction, and all students gave a warm welcome to his arrival. Later, Professor Peng gave a brief introduction about the main content of this lecture. Firstly, Professor Peng Xuanwei raised a series of questions on Chinese high-level English education, such as: how to provide a set of effective English (foreign language) education reform programs for Chinese people. Secondly, Professor Peng gave a brief answer to the problems faced by high-level English education in China. He believed that the basic foreign language teaching in universities should put training on listening and speaking ability to a crucial position, and the primary teaching process should not be too long, otherwise it will be time-consuming and inefficient. And he proposed that education authorities should adopt the multimedia network teaching mode to solve the shortage of teachers caused by enlarged recruitment. Finally, students and teachers raised some good questions and Professor Peng answered everyone's questions patiently.
From this lecture, the students not only understood problems of China's high-level English education, but also gained a deep understanding of the discipline of studying English. Students will read more books on this discipline and continue to learn from the experiences of other countries or regions, and therefore focus more on combining knowledge and skills together.
