Abstract
The instructors should adjust their professional English teaching strategy, as the graduate students' English ability keeps increasing year by year. Generally, students are better at reading and writing, compared to listening and speaking, which is typical of Chinese students. Most students could only figure out some words in listening, and professional English reading and writing are still a big challenge, as they are used to CET-4 and CET-6 type writing. The author took in latest scientific robot information in teaching, and adopted new ways of practices for listening/speaking/reading/writing/ and final evaluation, which got along quite well with the students. The real practice was proved very helpful in professional English teaching.
