A survey of the English learning situations of the non-English major freshmen

Zhu Jufen  
This paper makes a survey and discussion on the English learning situations of freshmen by means of the descriptive statistics and qualitative analysis of a study of the 118 non-English major freshmen who are selected at random from Nanjing University of Science and Technology. The major findings are as follows: (1) The freshmen are satisfied with the English instruction in middle school in spite of their dissatisfaction with their then English achievements. (2) They find English vocabulary, rather than listening ability, a major problem at the beginning of college English learning. (3) What they mostly want to master during the four-year study in university has turned out to be o-ral English instead of reading ability. (4) They know why they should leam English but they learn very passively. After analyzing the results, the paper further proposes several suggestions for improving college English teaching.
