Trends of Higher-Vocational English Teaching Modes in China-Based on The Visualization of Cite-Space
Researches on higher-vocational English teaching modes in China have developed for 19 years from 2003 to 2022. There are 8342 researches on higher vocational English teaching modes till Aug. 2022. It is urgent to figure out the research trends of higher-vocational English teaching modes, which include the research hot spots, frontiers and prospects in order to make recommendations for the further researches. Since the number of relative researches has been decreasing since 2018, 3058 researches on higher-vocational English teaching modes from Jan. 2018 to Aug. 2022 on CNKI platform were collected for this study. Cite Space 6.1.R3, as literature visualization analysis tool, was utilized for the study. Cluster analysis, kkeywords visualization function, burst detection function, keywords clustering and timeline function of Cite Space were applied for this research. As the analysis results indicate, the major research trends of higher-vocational English teaching modes include blended teaching mode in China; higher-vocational English teaching modes based on We- chat and other platforms. Research frontiers include business English, public English and hotel English teaching modes; Spoc (Small Private Online Course) teaching modes. Research prospects include blended teaching mode in public English education. As for the authors and institutions for the literature, Zhao Keyan has 15 frequency by citation and Hunan Arts and Crafts Vocational College has the strongest strength. As for the recommendation for further researches on higher-vocational English teaching modes, blended teaching modes in public higher-vocational English education are proposed.
