Abstract

The aim of this paper is to investigate the possible effects of reforms in College Entrance Examination and college-level English education on teachers’ position and development. We examine the history of English teaching reforms in recent 36 years in major cities and regions, its driving forces and traditional role of English teachers. The results we obtain prove that reforms in English is closely related to the economic demand of the society and political concerns. While English is still regarded as a critical skill, its position as a key subject in the whole education system has been weakening. The result suggests that English teachers should regard specialty English teacher and communicator of advanced foreign culture and brilliant traditional culture as a better direction of career transformation. However, the necessity and reasonableness of such reforms is still to be further studied.
