Creativity is a key element in the construction and development of a nation. The essential goal of quality-oriented education is to improve the quality of all college students, which focuses on cultivating their creative spirit and the ability to experiment. English education is an important component of college education. But for many years, English teaching in our country has been far from satisfaction. This article investigated and studied the effect of network-based English teaching on college students' creative thinking ability and attitude by comparing the results of college students' creative thinking ability and creative attitude under network-based English teaching circumstances and under traditional English teaching circumstances, based on network-based language teaching and creativity thinking theories. Besides, the differences between female and male students in their creative thinking ability and creative attitude were explored. The results of the study showed that network-based English teaching exerts some effects on improving college students' creative thinking ability, that students' creative attitude can be improved more or less under network-based English teaching circumstances comparing with under traditional English teaching circumstances, and that female students' creative thinking ability and creative attitude is relatively higher than males'. This article also made some suggestions on how to nurture student's creative thinking ability under network-based English teaching circumstances.
