ABSTRACT
With the increasing proportion of English news in the listening part of CET-4 or CET-6, the role of news English arouses the attention of both teachers and students. It is an efficient way to broaden students' view and foster the high-quality graduates through listening to radio, television and network news. Because the news English is wide ranging, timely and full of fun, students have got an easy access to it. On the basis of previous studies, the paper makes a preliminary investigation into the feasibility to carry out the college English teaching with news English.
