Abstract

Humanistic psychology stresses that both cognition and affection should be incorporated in human's wholesome and comprehensive development. In guidance of the humanistic psychology, a new round of reform in College English Curriculum Requirement has advocated. English classroom teaching has changed from an emphasis on the teacher-centered teaching, examination-oriented teaching, grammar and vocabulary-based approaches to a concern with the learner-centered, humanistic, quality-oriented and communicative approaches. The survey was conducted among teachers and students who are major in the Hotel Management to get a better understanding of the current situation of English classroom interaction in Guilin Normal College. 100 students and 15 teachers subjects were engaged in the study, and interviews were also carried out with 20 students and 6 teachers randomly chosen from those questionnaire subjects. Based on these findings, some suggestions are put forward for the college teachers and students to enhance the effectiveness of English teaching and learning.
