Halliday and Hasan (1976) considered that cohesion, one of the most important characteristic of text, exists within the text. Cohesive devices are mainly embodied by the surface structure in a text and form a tangible network. There should be one or several cohesive devices to transform one paragraph into coherent text. It is on the basis of cohesion theory that an experimental teaching is conducted to explore how to apply these cohesive devices to the teaching of college English listening and speaking and try to testify the teaching effect under the instruction of a Cohesion-focused Approach, suggested by the author and its application and promotion in different levels.
