Optimization Theory, proposed by Бaбaнcкий, emphasizes that ideal teaching and learning outcomes depend on how to bring the best performance out of current condition. On the one hand, this theory requires the concordance f teaching objectives, teaching contents, teaching approach and teaching form; on the other hand Бaбaнcкий puts emphasis on learner’s activities and their interactions with teachers. As far as what Optimization Theory is concerned, LAMS, featuring learners’ activities arrangement, just satisfies the need of the Optimization Theory. The author believes that combination of LAMS and Optimization Theory is bound to promote current teaching outcomes. Therefore, this paper intends to take intercultural communication course for example to further explain the application of LAMS under the guidance of Optimization Theory.
