Abstract
The ability to communicate effectively in English remains one of the well-established goals in English Language teaching. The essential interactive nature is the key to communicative competence. Given the fact that Chinese students learn English in an EFL setting, classroom language teaching becomes all the more valuable. Intensive reading course has been considered one of the comprehensive courses and a must for college students for decades in China. This paper, based on a quantitative research which offers a glimpse of the current situation of Intensive Reading Teaching in China, first addresses the role of language teacher and that of students in an interactive classroom and then addresses the significance of the application of interactive approach to the college Intensive Reading class, and finally proposes some feasible approaches to the language classroom teaching to better facilitate students’ learning and use of foreign language by providing a sample class for illustration.
