Abstract

In applied undergraduate colleges and universities, the silence phenomenon in English classrooms is common. However, many English teachers are troubled by this phenomenon. The teaching focus of English, as a language subject, is on basic skills such as listening and speaking. Therefore, the silence phenomenon will not only affect students’ communication skills, but also bring various negative implications. By analyzing the causes of this phenomenon in English classrooms at applied undergraduate colleges and universities, this paper proposes three solutions to solve this issue and enhance the pertinence and effectiveness of English teaching in applied colleges and universities: attaching importance to thinking, adhering to correct teaching concepts, and teaching students in accordance with their aptitude and to apply what they have learned.
