That is, insufficient learning interest, passive learning attitude, easily influenced, less effort, weak English foundation, obsolete learning methods, high language anxiety and incorrect self-attribution. For those reasons, firstly, the learning interest should be aroused and intrinsic and integrative motivations should be developed. Secondly, Learning attitudes and confidence should be rectified and established in the language teaching. Thirdly, a good volitional quality of the students should be cultivated. Fourthly, a good learning environment must be created; meanwhile, self-teaching consciousness and abilities should be developed as well.
