The Application of Output Hypothesis to College English Teaching
【摘要】：In recent years, with the development of the research on the Output Hypothesis, many Chinese English teachers begin to apply this hypothesis to English teaching. There are many teaching ways that have been applied in English teaching classes, for example, retelling sentences, retelling a text, describing a picture and expressing ideas indirectly and so on. In these classes, the traditional teaching modes have been changed. Nowadays, college English teachers not only pay attention to the input of language but also the output of language. They try to foster students' skills on the application of knowledge, and excavate their potential in order to promote their language proficiency. And the effect is quite obvious, so we should encourage more teachers to use the Output Hypothesis in different ways and improve students' English abilities.
