A study of translation theory was put on the top of priority in the traditional translation teaching, while translation practice was often ignored. As a result, English majors lacked initiative and creativity, even worse, the evaluation system “Final exam is everything” drove students to ignore the process of learning and practice. Given that, the mode “project-based assignment” is put into practice in the translation teaching class to help students learn translation theory and make translation practice as well. In this case, students pay more attention to translating process; therefore, their critical thinking and creative abilities, which are the prerequisite in improving their translation competence, can be developed and their esprit de corps can be created more easily by cooperating with others.
