华西都市报:在日益国际化的今天,英语仍具有非常重要的作用。高考改革给英语“降温”引发了热议。英语培训机构称,高考弱化对英语的考核,将促进很多学生寻求留学机构的教育。普通高中指出,高考英语改革将促使学校改变教学模式,提供“个性化教学”。
随着国家高考改革方案细节的披露,英语拟退出高考统一考试,分值将从150分降到100分,实行社会化考试这一改革,成为当前大家关注的热点话题,不少人认为,这是在给英语“降温”。英语真的不重要吗?高考英语改革后,英语教育将呈何种新生态?
学英语开始降温了?
“从目前的情况来看,英文依旧是国际化语言,在日常的国际交流当中必不可少。”
12月15日上午,树德中学光华校区的一间教室中,4名高中生,2人一对相对而坐。该校高二学生张校卿身穿西装,拿着厚厚一叠打印好的资料,用流利的英语提出自己的观点。讲台上,一名外国裁判仔细地聆听他的讲话,并不时做记录。在树德中学全国中学生英语学术辩论赛(四川赛区)的现场,来自西南地区的51支高中生队伍,用英语展开针锋相对的辩论,哈佛、耶鲁、斯坦福等美国名校的招生官,都非常认可辩论赛的成绩。
在“英语降温论”持续发酵的今天,全美演讲与辩论联盟中国办公室市场总监Jordan仍然在通过辩论赛推广英语。Jordan分析说,在日益国际化的今天,英语仍然具有非常重要的作用。“中国学生应正确对待这种状况,中文和英文的学习并不矛盾,学生可以在学好中文的同时,也多多重视英文。”
Jordan告诉记者,学术辩论赛不仅能提高学生的英文水平,对提升学生思考问题的能力、与人沟通的能力、对海量信息处理的能力等,也非常有帮助,因此,能在辩论赛中取得优异成绩的学生,不仅是成绩好,还必须具备以上素质,美国顶尖高校看中的也就是学生的这些素养。Jordan说,“美国高校会根据他们对于学生的能力要求招生,其中就包括参加过学术辩论赛的高中生。”
将给留学机构带来怎样的影响?
“越来越多想要出国留学的学生将寻求留学机构的帮助,这对留学机构来说非常有利。”

学生将寻求更优质的英语教育
  “英文是当前学生必须掌握的一门语言。”谈及高考改革给英语“降温”,成都某知名留学机构负责人接受记者采访时直言,“英文是当前学生必须掌握的一门语言。”该负责人指出,如果高考弱化对英语的考核,学校将无法为家长和学生提供更为优质的英语教育,那么,就会有越来越多想要出国留学的学生寻求留学机构的帮助,这对留学机构来说,非常有利。”

英语培训将转为能力培养
  新东方集团副总裁、迈格森国际教育总裁谢琴在接受记者采访时表示,“在美国英国,人们几乎至少掌握两门语言,在中国,我觉得不管政策是否规定要通过考试来鉴定英语能力,英语都是值得掌握的一门语言。”
对于未来的培训市场,谢琴说,虽然高考在弱化英语,但是不可能冲击英语培训班。改革只是改善了应试教育,但对于市场上的英语培训机构来说是一件好事,这样英语培训将回到教育的本质:能力的提升。“众所周知,学生参加英语课外辅导是为了提高英语成绩,抛去了分数的认定,学英语就变成了学本领、学能力。可以说这个政策是对培训机构的一份大礼,让英语辅导回归本质。”
这个观点也得到了仁寿县文林第三小学英语高级教师汤学兰的赞同,她说,现在的小学英语是百分制,着重兴趣、听说读方面的培养,可以为初中的英语学习奠定基础。凡是小学学过英语的学生,初中英语学起来很容易上手。
教英语何种新生态?
“公办学校教育应该向‘个性化教育’转变,为学生提供多重教育选择。”

培养双语人才外国语类学校优势更明显
  “我认为,现在的改革对于外国语类的学校来说,利大于弊。”知名教育专家、成都三原外国语学校校长杨能生指出,随着高考制度的改革,公办学校的教材、课时、教学方式会发生改变。外国语类学校培养的是具有双语素养的国际化人才,吸引的是对外语能力有特别需求的家长和学生,改革后,外国语类学校的优势将更加明显,学生有了更大的空间去提升外语能力。“双语优势,在学生随后的求学、就业中,就意味着竞争优势,对于将来准备出国的学生来说,外语学校是一个很好的选择。”

促使学校改变教学模式提供“个性化教学”
  成都树德中学副校长毛道生认为,公办学校教育应该向“个性化教育”转变,为学生提供多重教育选择。
他指出,目前普通高中提供的是“大一统”的英语教学模式,而英语实行社会化考试之后,就需要学校作出相应的教学改革,为学生提供多样化的教学选择。比如,为参加高考的考生提供高考水平的英语教学,而对于想要在英语方面有更大突破的学生,就要提供更深层次的教学模式。对于老师来说,教学方式也将真正进行“因材施教”的改革。
“分层分类的教育是必然的发展趋势。”毛道生说,改革后,学生可以根据自己未来的职业发展规划,选择适合自己的教学模式。李天雷华西都市报记者王静菊张菲菲
