CONSTRUCTIVISM LEARNING THEORY AND FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHING & LEARNING

L. Lv, Y. Zhao

North China Electric Power University (CHINA)
Constructivism learning theory claims that learning is an active process in which learners construct new ideas or concepts based upon their current and past knowledge. The learner selects and transforms information, constructs hypothese, and makes decisions. Constructivism learning theory is one of the most popular contemporary learning theories in the West. It provides educators with an entirely new psychological view of examining pedagogical issues.
With the introduction to the constructivism learning theory, which is highly evaluated and issues its challenge to the traditional theories of teaching and learning, the present paper focuses on the explanation of the relationship between the constructivism and the foreign language learning, discussing how to construct the constructivism belief that the foreign language learning process should be optimized efficiently and put it into practice, aiming at promoting learners’ foreign language ability in all-round way.
