The teaching of postgraduate specialized English has changed from the purely professional vocabulary learning or the imparting of professional technical knowledge to the application ability of academic English. In order to adapt to this change, based on the investigation and analysis of the current situation of professional English teaching and the study characteristics of the graduate students, this paper discusses the main problems existing and builds a more efficient professional English learning class. A series of reform and exploration ideas are put forward from the aspects of strengthening professional pertinence, giving full play to students' independent learning ability and carrying out cooperative teaching.
