The phenomenon of code switching in bilingual classrooms has been around for a long time, and scholars and linguists both at home and abroad have studied it from linguistics, pragmatics, and psychology and so on. At the same time, the debate over code switching has never stopped. Previous studies have conducted a theoretical analysis of the phenomenon of code switching, and there are few empirical studies on its role in ESP teaching in higher vocational colleges. This paper attempts to apply code switching in high vocational English teaching and explore its functions from an empirical point of view.
