Speaking, as a productive language skill, has been a major issue in English language learning, as learners’ success in English is often determined by how well they can communicate in English . China, as an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) country, the acquisition of oral abilities is a long-standing challenge for English language learners . There are many factors behind this phenomenon. Many researchers point out that lack of authentic language context and few exposures to the language might be one of the factors . EFL learners who lack of confidence and have anxiety to speak English is another factor [1, 7, 8, 16] also the interference of speakers’ mother tongue will affect language learning process . These factors may cause teaching such speaking skills in EFL context not easy.
This paper discusses strategies that can be implemented to improve students’ English-speaking skills. It shows that the use of computer-assisted language learning methods can improve EFL students’ English-speaking skills. The study may provide some insights for future research and some suggestions for teachers’ application.
