Fourteen classes majored in civil engineering were given lectures of Special English in Wuchang shouyi University. They were grouped in two, one was taught in interruption method by giving an assignment of preparing PPT for the lecture to see how they perform before and after that. The other eight were taught in development method which derived from the former and went further by providing more chances to get involved in class. The whole experiment shows that getting students involved by taking part in class is an effective way to prop up their interest in learning, thus improving their performance in class and tests.
