Abstract


In the context of global integration, there is a growing need for talents who master English, the lingua franca, and excel in English communication. Therefore, an important goal of English teaching is to enhance the students’ ability to communicate in English. After analyzing the ideas and principles of applying virtual scenes based on electronic schoolbag (e-schoolbag), this paper established an e-schoolbag model with several function modules, and created virtual scenes that seamlessly connect with actual scenes. Next, a questionnaire survey was carried out on students’ English communication ability, and virtual scenes were designed based on e-schoolbag for English teaching. Finally, a comparative analysis was conducted to verify if the e-schoolbag-based virtual scenes can improve students’ ability to communicate in English. The results showed that the main problems of English teaching are the lack of diverse teaching methods, the boring teaching contents, and the overemphasis on examination; students are not good at English communication, due to the absence of a suitable linguistic environment; the e-schoolbag-based virtual scenes can provide students with a favorable linguistic environment, arouse their interests in learning English communication, and significantly improve their English communication ability.
