Abstract
This descriptive NA research with 455 participants studies the Chinese independently-run college learners’ needs, to help teachers design College English elective courses. It finds that the learners’ target needs include to pass English exams for future career and academic study, and to talk fluently in English; students’ learning needs are to satisfy the personal interest, to learn autonomously with passionate and knowledgeable teachers in a relaxed atmosphere with authentic, creative and enlightening class activities with authentic learning materials, and to develop their cognition in the first and the second academic years. Proposals for College English elective courses design are made accordingly.
