Evaluation of Several New Models to Teach English as a Second Language

Jian Wang


With the development of modern society, it is commonly accepted in China that English as a second language has attracted much attention especially for students. How to select an appropriate model to learn English is still an important question. After the induction of some relevant attributes related to the assessment of this problem, the key point is to propose a method to assess different models, which can be considered as a MADM problem. To date, many attempts by researchers have been done, but there are still some drawbacks. Thus, in order to overcome the weakness in existing methods, an intuitionsitic fuzzy multiple decision making method is proposed in this paper to acquire an optimal model including the construction of a decision matrix, aggregation operators, score function and a method for determining the weights of attributes. Finally, an example is demonstrated to verify the applicability of the method proposed in this paper.
