Jilin Li’s concept of situational teaching creatively combines students’ activities in both emotion and cognition, greatly mobilizes students’ enthusiasm for learning, and explores an effective path for students’ happy and efficient learning. Based on Li’s theory of situational teaching, we created a real language teaching environment as much as possible allowing students to understand the information and language materials expressed by the situation in the process of experiencing the situation, focusing on how to study effectively in the English class. The situational teaching method is used to stimulate students’ interest in English learning and to cultivate students’ independent creativity, so that they can master the four basic language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing, and finally form comprehensive language application ability.
