It was observed in English classes that Tibetan students do not concentrate on listening to teachers, and their interest in class is easily transferred to irrelevant activities such as mobile phone games. According to the survey data, 80% of Tibetan students are feeling tired of school life, and nearly 90% of students rarely enjoy learning or the experience of success. English learning is a burden of being forced to cater to the wishes of their parents and teachers. Faced with lags in learning outcomes, Tibetan students do not want to actively seek solutions with appropriate learning methods.
