Abstract
Globalization has greatly stimulated the demands and enthusiasm for learning English in China, thus the use of English has greatly increased with China’s strong desires to be the crucial character at the world stage. English plays a key role in many different fields, such as politics, economics and education. As for education, more and more college students are aware that English is an important medium which can help them further study. However, due to the lack of instructions and systematic learning methods, how to learn English effectively and efficiently at university, especially oral English, is still a troublesome problem for many college students. This paper explores the styles of learning English among Chinese EFL students in China’s university context based on investigation data, analyzes the challenges relating to oral English Chinese EFL students during learning process, traces these factors back to their learning experiences, and finally gives recommendations on how to take full use of surrounding resources to develop English speaking ability for Chinese tertiary schools in the future.
