Abstract
This paper analyzes the curricular and extracurricular English learning behaviors of 243 science and engineering students, and then makes ??a description of their learning behavior patterns: the students’ curricular learning behavior is static, extracurricular learning behavior is passive, and extracurricular communicative act is a one-way street exchange, which is unable to adapt to the requirements of China’s higher education reform. Based on the constructivism learning theory, the paper proposes some suggestions for English teaching reform as per the “Outstanding Program”: 1) Creating a new teaching mode and a new curriculum system to adapt to the “Outstanding Program”. 2) Making full use of modern teaching facilities and optimizing network classroom. 3) Improving the faculty quality and being an “outstanding teacher”. 4) Encouraging students to participate in social services and service practice to enhance collaborative learning.
