The aim of the study is to explore the use of drama activities in English communication class in a Chinese arts college and to determine whether drama activities are beneficial to arts majors’ language proficiency and other cognitive skills. For this study, we employed a qualitative method by analyzing students’ reflective writing and observing participants’ activities. The findings show that drama in education is an effective way to teach college English in a Chinese arts college, so that a more elaborated curriculum design is urgently needed for better teaching and learning.
