I. Introduction
As everyone knows,   one of the most important ways that the students learn English is the classroom teaching. As far as the English teaching in the middle schools is concerned, teachers have to attractand improve the students' interest so that they may learn better . There are many ways to arouse the students' interest and help them to learn better, body language used in English teaching is one of them.
Body language is an important media through which people communicate with each other. It refers to the patterns of facial expressions and gestures that people use to express thEIr feelings and meanings in communication. The specialist on body language research, Fen Lafel  Angles, once said, "Once it was lost, a baby couldn't have grown into a normal person". It's also true to the juveniles. In school education, body language plays an  active role in cultivating the students' characters. Teachers are usually respected, and factually, what or how the teachers say and do will be possibly imitated by the students (sometimes subconsciously). In a word, teachers' graceful body language helps to improve the students' artistic-appreciation and moral character. If the students develop a wonderful body language, which will possibly leads them to form an optimistic and active feelings, they will surely have a more smooth interpersonal relation.
The affection of teachers' body language on the students is reflected not only by establishing a good example, but also shortening the teacher-student estrangement by which a more harmonious studying atmosphere is created.  As a matter of fact, teachers' friendly appearance can greatly encourage the students' studying enthusiasm and interest. Furthermore, the characteristics of theoretic and abstraction of knowledge also requires the vivid, dramatic and an accessible gestures to make it specific and figurative. As a result, the students' interest is motivated and the effect of teaching also is greatly improved.
II. The necessity and importance of using body language in English teaching
English teaching is an important part of the school education. With the English teaching methods’ reform, more and more English teachers organize the teaching process in English so that they may realize the Communicated English. The Communicated English means that teachers instruct the students and explain questions basically in English, and the students are also required to use English in class. Contemporarily, however, the students in the middle school can't speak very well; neither can they understand why they should use different tones in different time or situation; their vocabulary and expressive ability are limited too. These limitations made it difficult to realize the Communicated English in class. According to the students' present level and practical situation, body language is pretty necessary. For example, when a teacher gives an instruction, "You two, please  stand up." The students can easily understand it if the teacher looks at (or points to) some two students. Then, the teacher moves his hand up. The students will carry out the order without obstacle even if they don't hear the key words "stand up" clearly. Furthermore, teachers usually have to explain some language points, and at this time, they have to differentiate the classroom expressions and the examples. Take it for example, we should use the form 'have done', such as 'Have you finished that job yet?'" To make the students understand clearly and easily, a teacher has lots of ways. One is to do it by speed, the teacher uses a common speed when he is reading "we should use the form 'have done in this sentence'", and reads slowly when giving examples; he can also get the effect by repeating the example 'Have you finished that job yet?'; a more frequent way is to use gestures to lay emphasis on the key points when he said "have done"(emphasizing it in voice at the same time), he reaches out his index finger,  pauses in the air, and then gives out the example. This action will usually give the students a deep impression. From the above we can learn, the use of body language in English teaching is necessary and practical. In the English teaching in middle schools, body language is frequently used to improve the teaching effect and the students' ability.
