  Albert Einstein says "interest is the best teacher". Firstly,teachers' attitudes are very important for teaching, it can provide students a relatively relaxed atmosphere of learning English, and then use of body language is accord with the students' cognitive process. it not only can cultivate students' attention, but also develop their nimble and accurate thinking ability. For example, teach "What are you doing? " you can design the following body language to the text content: let the students make writing, or dancing together with you, students do the body language with teacher, listen and do warm up in the activities to enter the study condition, then it has made the natural upholstery for the new class and stimulated students' study interest greatly。

The teachers can use the body language in the teaching as follows: at first, they can read number1-10 showing our hands at the same time. For example, "three" the teachers can stretch out three fingers. Then the students think it is interesting and imitate immediately, in addition, visual pattern of the body language can help students to understand and remember vocabulary easily. For example, like verb "sing, dance, "noun "bird, dog"; adjective " thin,fat; big, all" and so on. All this maybe taught by the proper movement directly. The psychology research tells us, the students working with the full brain can stimulate student's cerebral cortex and then the content is not easy to be forgotten. Therefore, teachers design some practices frequently with the body language to enhance the study effect.
