Abstract


In order to change the problems of low teaching efficiency and slow development of students' writing ability in the course of College English Writing in China, this paper puts forward a teaching model of "mobile micro-writing + automatic correction + English WeChat", and conducted a 32-class-hour instructional reform experiment in 16 weeks to two classes of sophomores majoring in English. The results show that more than 90% of the students in the experimental class support the teaching model, and their interest in English writing, self-awareness of writing and English writing ability have been significantly improved, especially their average score of English writing has increased by 25.51%. Furthermore, they have significant advantages over the control class in writing time, word number, composition score, writing length, vocabulary use, sentence length, and so on. In the meantime, this study analyzes the existing problems of the intelligent correction system, which provides a reference for the non-English speaking countries' English writing teaching.
