Application of the Situational Method in Medical English Teaching: A Case Study of the Professional Degree Postgraduates in Clinical Medicine

LIANG Dong;School of Foreign Studies, Xi'an Medical University;  
The professional degree postgraduate education starts relatively late in our country. Nowadays, there exist many similarities between the training mode of professional degree postgraduates and the training mode of academic degree postgraduates in domestic universities, and there is no big difference in English teaching between them. With respect to their English teaching, there is not much difference. The orientation of English teaching for professional degree postgraduates lies in strengthening students' application ability in vocational practice, which is different from that of the undergraduates stage and that for academic degree postgraduates. The situational method is based on the constructivism theory, aiming at improving students' abilities of using language in specific situations, which can stimulate students' interest and initiative in learning effectively. Taking the professional degree graduate students of clinical medicine as an example, this paper discusses the application of the situational method in medical English teaching for professional degree postgraduates, illustrating in details how to create situations in medical practice, how to make preparations before class, how to carry it out in classroom teaching practice, and how to make evaluation and summary. It is expected to provide some inspirations for the English teaching reform of professional degree medical postgraduates.
