Despite the development of English teaching pedagogies in schools and universities, many concerns are raised regarding the tensions between teachers’ practices and effectiveness of students’ learning have on students’ academic achievements. The aim of this study is to explore university students’ preferences and experiences in English learning and teaching process. Based on their preferences and experiences, an innovative concept model of the Communicative Language Community of English Learners “CLCOEL” was introduced for the benefit of learners in both real learning environment and virtual environment. The findings not only provide recommendations for policy decision makers and practice in China but also for those who are teaching and learning English with Confucian-heritage cultural backgrounds in a similar context.
