Towards Promotion of Pragmatic Competence: Discourse Analysis in College Writing Classes
LI Hai-ying;College of Foreign Languages, Yunnan Minzu University;
Language acquisition is far more than targeting its surface systems including grammatical patterns, lexical meanings, set structures and the like. It is for it that a shift is naturally coming up, i.e. more and more people's increasing concern on language use in real situations. For adult learners in China, English is quite different from the mother tongue that can be acquired naturally and with ease. In the learning process, linguistic knowledge is usually taught first, and then for the purpose of grasping language skills learners' automaticization should be involved. On the ground of the fact that classroom teaching is the main channel for most college students' to have their language input, teachers' wise strategies and full use of classrooms are quite essential for their language intake and general level as a whole. To enhance students' pragmatic competence, i.e. the ability to apply language flexibly and appropriately, this paper tries to find a way out in view of this concept, namely, the promotion of pragmatic competence by discourse analysis in writing classes.
