Silence is a common phenomenon in daily life and communication, and it also exists in the process of learning English. In class, the teacher speaks alone, and the students are in a state of “silence”, which is not conducive to the interaction and communication between teachers and students, and affects the quality of teaching. Teachers have noticed this phenomenon and are trying to find effective ways to make changes. This paper aims to analyse and comment on the phenomenon of class silence from the perspectives of its basic content, its research history and current situation, its research methods, its existing problems and its development trend.
