An Exploration of English Teaching for Mechanical Engineering from the View of Meta-cognitive Strategy Based on Multimedia Network

Wenting Ma


To improve the efficiency and effect of mechanical English learning, the advantages of computer-assisted learning is analyzed, and the teaching model based on Multimedia network is proposed. By means of comparing the results of the experimental teaching model, conclusions are drawn that the experimental type (ET) can stimulate students’ motivation much more than the control type (CP) can do. To elaborate the theoretical foundations of both task-based language teaching (TBLT) and computer assisted language learning (CALL) for mechanical engineering students, it shows the necessity and feasibility of TBLT based on Multimedia- Network for mechanical English. A teaching model for mechanical English is constructed which includes an experimental research in its application in teaching mechanical engineering students. The result of the experiment proves that the task-based teaching model based on multimedia network changes the students’ passive attitude in traditional teaching process and makes them more active in the class. In this case students’ interest and creativity are stimulated and their autonomous learning ability can be trained.
