Mind mapping is an effective graphical thinking tool for expressing divergent thinking. The scaffolding teaching mode of mind map will strengthen the connection between semantic knowledge and image knowledge in listening, speaking, reading and writing in the overall English teaching process. It promotes the cognitive structure of learners and enables them in a active status. It help them acquire new knowledge with old ones and promote their the methods of learning with the methods teaching. What’s more, it also help learners achieve constructive learning, cumulative learning, collaborative learning and reflective learning, and finally achieve the real and meaningful language learning.
