Abstract
In recent years, the cultivation of students’ key competencies has become the basis for many countries or regions to formulate educational policies and carry out educational reforms. However, there are still some disadvantages in the teaching model of English majors, such as unadvanced teaching concept, insufficient training of application ability, weak information literacy of teachers, and imperfect teaching evaluation system. Currently, the teaching model and talent training program of English majors in China are shouldering the important task of adjustment and reform. Among them, the development of students’ critical thinking ability has become an important way to cultivate innovative talents in the new era. Therefore, the teaching of English majors in colleges and universities should focus on the cultivation of students’ critical thinking ability, and we need to explore a new teaching mode combining key competencies and classroom teaching, thus to cultivate high-quality innovative talents in China and effectively improve the international competitiveness of English majors in colleges and universities.
