ABSTRACT

While various language teaching methodologies had been introduced in previous days in China, none of them have gained popularity like Morning-Reading (MR) at colleges. MR differs itself from the traditional meaning in that it focuses on “speaking” rather than “reading”. It is an oral English practice method aimed at solving the problem of so called ‘啞巴英 語’ (Dumb English). Having mixed a qualitative research method with a quantitative one, this study collected two videos of MR practice, an interview, and a questionnaire to show the MR status quo of Chinese college students. This paper presents a series of fragmentary and independent sections on morning-reading in order to present to the audience this learning method. Then the unique English learning/teaching method in terms of the structure of “the concept of method” established by Jack Richards and Theodore Rodgers would be defined. At the end of this paper, the application values of MR in building college students’ English competence and other abilities were discussed.
