Abstract

Under such a circumstance, the evaluation of college English course book is now increasing. The author intends to understand the current use of this set of course books and existing problems to discover the consistence, applicability, adaptability and flexibility of 21st Century Practical College English. The author firstly introduced the purpose of the research, then she made an internal evaluation of the course book adopted by her teaching college by the guidance of previous studies on evaluation at home and abroad. It also analyzed the current use of the course book by using the data collected from the teachers’, the students’ questionnaires and classroom observation. From the results of this study the author concluded that 21st Century Practical College English is a set of course books that generally meets the needs of college English curriculum requirements in our country. The structure and design of the course book can well meet the needs of both teachers and students. But it is not sufficient in cultivating overall skills and teaching methods.
