- In the post-massification period, it is a beneficial attempt to the reform of English Teaching based on subject content for non-English-majored college students. Content-Based Instruction (CBI) has been defined as “the teaching of content orinformation in the language being learned with little or no direct or explicit effort to teach the language itself separately from the content being taught”, which can make the students not only learn knowledge but also improve their foreign language ability in learning content. Results in this study showed that: in the post massification period, content-based English teaching could improve the level of motivation and English language ability of students in their English learning, but CBI was not suitable for poor English learners with no good foreign language (English) basis.
