With the development of society and the advancement of economic globalization, English has gradually become the common language of the international community. Under such English background and social environment, English is not only a tool for people to communicate, but also a means to enhance international economic competitiveness. Therefore, under the new curriculum reform, we should update our teaching concepts and teach students how to learn and think, instead of instilling knowledge directly into students. Education is a slow art. “Slow Education” plays an important role in daily classroom teaching and is more effective than unscientific and unreasonable “fast”. This paper mainly expounds the basic definition and principles of “Slow Education”, the practical operation of “Slow Education” in English teaching in higher vocational colleges, and the author's reflection on “Slow Education”.
