A Review of Studies on Multimodal Foreign Language Teaching in China
Multimodal teaching is a new teaching philosophy put forward by stein, which interpreted as teachers in the classroom using sound, pictures, animation and other channels to mobilize the students’ multi-sensory response, so that students actively participate in the dynamic language learning, which focuses on training students to multiple reading ability and promoting students to participate in language learning through participation and cooperation.
In the 1990s, Western scholars developed a combination of social semiotics, systemic functional grammar, and traditional discourse analysis based on critical discourse analysis. The theory thinks that language is a social symbol, while the other non-language symbols are painting, music, dance, and so on，which is also the source of meaning expression. The non-language symbol modes are independent and interact with each other and generate meanings together with language symbols. It breaks through the limitations of traditional discourse analysis and isolated research on the language itself, and extends the study of discourse to modal symbols other than language, such as images, colors, and fonts, in addition it focuses on various modal symbols in discourse. With the development of 20 years, multimodal discourse analysis has been widely used in various disciplines which also plays an important role in foreign language teaching.
