Abstract

Literature is used as an authentic material to teach English reading and accelerate the language acquisition in Chinese EFL context. This paper provides an detailed analysis on the reader-response approach which is based on reader-response theory to demonstrate that by putting the relation between reader and literary text, reader-response approach challenges the traditional Chinese way of teaching literature. Through emphasizing the reader’s interpretation of the text, students can go beyond the barrier of language difficulties and achieve right levels of language competence by adopting reader-response approach in literature teaching in Chinese EFL context
