Abstract


College English is a compulsory course in Chinese higher education curriculum. Under the guide of College English Curriculum Requirements in 2004, many universities have undertaken the experiment of computer and network-based teaching model which is supposed to provide individualized learning for students of different kinds and improve the effect of college English teaching and learning. In order to learn the effects of this new teaching model, an investigation was carried out among the students who had taken part in the teaching experiment in Zhejiang Ocean University. The results show that 67% of the students are in favor of the new teaching model. More extroverted students like the new model than the introverts. The new model seems to fit better to those students who are active in study and who prefer independent learning. To produce the expected results of the new teaching model, teachers should take students’ different learning styles into consideration.
