Abstract
This study adopts quantitative and qualitative analysis to figure out the relationship between students’ willingness to communicate in English inside the classroom environment and situational variable. Interlocutors, topic and conversational context are three key aspects. Thus, we find out that situational variable does influence students’ willingness to communicate in English inside the classroom. Interlocutors are mainly among classmates and teacher, while topic and conversational context mainly confines to limited teaching materials in English class. Therefore, teacher should attach more significance to situational variable for increasing students’ sense of security and interest, and cultivating students’ willingness to communicate.
