Abstract


The recent decade has seen a big development of language teaching especially English language teaching for non-English majors in China with its rapid internationalization of many fields. A university graduate equipped with global competence is a valuable talent who are in great need by the country and it is the institutions of higher learning that take the major responsibility for their cultivation. This paper firstly identifies the current language teaching problems in Chinese universities, and then explains global competence by clarifying each of its components according to both Tsinghua University and OECD’s framework. The latter half of the paper is devoted to the suggestions for constructing a global-competence-oriented college foreign language teaching system from the aspects of the course groups, teaching model, and evaluation mode.
