To Chinese primary school students, English belongs to the second language of learning. In the actual learning process, subject to numerous factors such as the huge difference between native language and foreign language, it is impossible to completely eliminate various cultural barriers and regional barriers. However, by applying the Natural Approach where teaching activities are carried out in a natural teaching mode, English classroom teaching can be closely linked with students’ real life. Through setting up a natural and real classroom environment and using flexible and diverse teaching approaches, students’ learning enthusiasm can be better stimulated, who can be guided to acquire certain language skills in an active way, thus improving the classroom teaching effect.
