Abstract
In many years of College English teaching, the writer finds that university students in China have difficulty reading out all-capital-letter English in the materials they are reading, and teachers and researchers have never paid attention to it. Such phenomenon draws the attention of the writer who begin studying about students’ reading abilities of all-capital-letter English. This study describes an autonomous training about college students’ reading of all-capital-letter English, in which 20 English majors in Jinggangshan Univercity (China) participated. The research results demonstrated that students’ reading awareness and reading abilities of all-capital-letter English had been greatly improved. It is suggested that in English teaching the comprehensive abilities of English should cover the reading abilities of all-capital-letter English and students’ reading abilities of all-capital-letter English should be cultivated, to which English teachers and researchers should attach importance.
