Abstract
Experiential English writing teaching is a method which is based on the principles of student-orientation and task-base. Through the concrete experience and cooperation, it aims to help students find the principles of English writing and apply them to the practical writing. The keys of experiential English writing lie in the design of experiential situations and reflect the principles of communicative teaching. The paper briefly introduces the theory of Experiential Learning, puts forward a new method of experiential English writing, and expounds its connotation and main stages. The results show that the experiential English writing method can stimulate students’ interests in English writing, enhance their communicative ability, choose the suitable words and sentences and expand the writing contents, which is superior to the traditional product writing method. It is considered as a newly effective writing method.
