For a long time, foreign language educators have been focusing on how to improve students' academic performance, while paying little or no attention to students' emotional experience in learning a foreign language. The new curriculum standard puts forward the cultivation goal of "emotional attitude" and emphasizes the positive emotional education for students. People are becoming increasing aware of the importance of emotional education. How to integrate emotional education into classroom teaching has become a major issue for teachers. Therefore, based on Krashen's effective filter theory, this paper aims to explore its implications for contemporary primary school emotional education so as to put forward some constructive suggestions for primary school English classroom teaching.
