Abstract

Influenced by traditional exam-oriented education, English teaching tends to be more utilitarian, and its humanity and critical thinking are neglected. In view of this phenomenon, this paper explores how to cultivate humanistic spirit in English teaching through literature review, English teaching practice and taking Advanced English for English majors as an example. This paper discusses methods such as extended topic discussion, multi-perspective reading, rhetoric language appreciation and exploration of cultural connotation, all of which aim to expand students’ humanistic vision, enhance their humanity qualities, and equip them with critical thinking.
