Scholars have been showing great interest in the Thinking Mode, Cognition Mechanism and Information Processing during the process of second language learning. Efforts have been exerted on the figuring out of the relationship between mother tongue and target language, and the major role mother tongue plays in the whole process of cognition operation. This paper, on the basis of ‘Knowledge-Cognition-Meta cognition’ theory, conducts an investigation of 130 junior high students from four middle schools in Singapore on how mother tongue thinking monitors Chinese (L2) learning through the stimulus of textbook English notes. This survey, consisting of three parts including vocabulary, sentence and discourse learning, aims to explore the deep operation mechanism of mother tongue thinking monitoring, and they are autonomous learning intention monitoring, independent understanding monitoring, quick understanding monitoring, rapid memorizing monitoring, and quick application of learned knowledge monitoring. The result indicates: (1)the way English thinking monitoring Chinese learning appears to be obvious and apparent; (2)the students have strong intention of autonomous learning; (3)the learning effects of target language have been largely improved.
