In the western areas of China, bilingual teaching is in the beginning phrase, and hasn’t reached the desirable outcomes.

The research finds that learners have pessimistic attitude toward bilingual teaching and don’t realize that the great importance of bilingual teaching in terms of personal development in the long run. The efficiency of bilingual teaching is affected by multitude of factors, including students’ attitudes and learning methods, learning situation in and after class, teacher’s levels, assessment methods and students’ understanding levels. The thesis also investigates the evaluation systems of bilingual teaching and finds that students prefer the combination of oral and written exam.
