Findings show that: over one third students cannot adapt to college’s teaching and learning mode, and a large portion of students are short of reading motivation; the student’s adaptability to teaching and learning in college, the recognition degree to professor’s teaching approach, the reason of course election and the concentration in class are significant positive factors affecting student’s learning interest.
