Abstract
Chinglish is Chinese unique political term and popular saying produced by Chinese inherent culture and ideology, and it refers to the unauthentic usages of English of Chinese people in an unconscious way due to the influence of Chinese language habits and modes of thinking when they are expressing their thoughts in English. Chinglish is a common phenomenon in the process of students’ English learning in universities and colleges, and it has a great influence on the cultivation of students’ English communicative ability in universities and colleges as well. Therefore, it is necessary to make an analysis of the causes of Chinglish of students in universities and colleges and discuss its significance in English teaching in universities and colleges. The purpose of this paper is to explore the causes of Chinglish in universities and colleges so as to avoid the use of Chinglish in universities and colleges in the process of English teaching and learning. This paper is mainly a qualitative and documentary research. It can be resulted from the analysis that Chinglish is caused by interference of mother tongue, lack of language context, differences in modes of thinking, cultural differences and so on. Besides, English teachers in universities and colleges should help students form a relatively independent English learning system in order to avoid the use of Chinglish as well as improve students’ comprehensive ability of using English in communication.
