Abstract

In order to raise students’ English language competences, the Constructivist-based teaching mode is applied in the English language teaching and learning process. The interactive and collaborative nature of Constructivist-based offers opportunities for language learning beyond traditional pedagogy. From the constructivist paradigm of teaching English, authentic experience is greatly emphasized as experiential learning enables students to appreciate English and a sure way of getting students interested in English learning. The investigation shows that English language competences can cultivate students’ language skills, language knowledge, emotional attitudes, learning strategy and cultural awareness. Constructivist-based language learning mode emphasizes the student’s subjective role, individual characteristics, authentic learning activities, and features of active learning. Student-centered teaching mode can help students learn English flexibly, effectively and efficiently.
