For years great emphasis has been placed on Intensive Reading (IR) course. IR has dominated English language curriculum in the teacher-dominated class, students do nothing but just read, listen, write, translate, imitate, memorize. IR has incurred criticisms which point out disadvantages stemming from IR approach. A number of learning strategies, presumably relevant to IR course in Chinese context, are suggested for Chinese teachers of English. They may integrate instruction on the use of the suggested learning strategies with regular classroom activities.
