|Other Titles:||A Study on the Implementation of English Ability-grouping Teaching in Technological Universities in Central Taiwan|
Department of Industrial Education, NTNU
English teaching and learning has been challenging both the teacher and students here in Taiwan for years because of the EFL (English as a foreign language) setting. Moreover, the diversity of students' English proficiency in a class makes it more difficult to pursue the teaching goal. Therefore, the trend of implementing the English ability-grouping teaching has been spread widely in the higher education, especially in technological and vocational schools in the hope of providing students with adaptive learning and elevating the effectiveness of English teaching. The present study was mainly to explore the current state of English ability-grouping teaching among technological schools and its effectiveness. The major findings were as the following: (1) the English ability-grouping teaching needed great administrative support from the school to accomplish its task; (2) it had generated better effectiveness of English teaching and learning; and (3) it had provided students with satisfactory and adaptive teaching method. Moreover, the target college students had made a progress on listening and reading comprehension in English achievement tests after taking the new teaching strategy. However, the percentage of the students in the target college to achieve theelementary level of the GEPT (General English Proficiency Test), a standard-referenced test, was pretty low (2.3%), compared with the average 23.8% among technological colleges/universities, which drew out an urge to implement a more practical and adaptive teaching method.
