【Abstract】 The aim of English teaching in middle school is to cultivate the students’ comprehensive communicative ability. But nowadays, the English ability of many middle school students is poor, because of their lack of interest in learning English. In order to improve the class teaching results, English teachers need to combine the nonverbal language---body language with the verbal language in the process of teaching. Although body language is a nonverbal language, it can help us express ourselves more clearly sometimes. So body language plays a very important role in middle school English class teaching.This thesis firstly analyses the background, reasons and significance of the study of body language. Secondly, it analyses the development of the body language and introduces the definition, characteristics, classification and function of body language in English class teaching. Then it expounds the application of body language in middle school English class teaching from four aspects:listening, speaking, reading and writing. Lastly, it indicates the principle on how to apply body language to English teaching. The findings from the teaching practice are as follows:On the one hand, the proper using of body language can activate study atmosphere at English class and it can stimulate the students’ interest in learning English, making them happy to participate in classroom activities. Moreover, the application of body language can help students improve their listening, speaking, reading and writing level and leave the students deeper impression. On the other hand, the proper using of body language can improve the further mutual understanding between the teachers and the students and help them develop a good relationship, promoting the teaching effectiveness. Therefore, the teachers should pay much attention to body language and properly use it in middle school English class teaching.
