Abstract
With the continuous acceleration of the process of economic globalization in China, the international cultural exchange has gradually increased. English has become an important part of our daily work and communication. With the further reform of education and the improvement of English teaching quality, College English teaching must reposition itself. There are some differences in purpose between academic English and general English. Academic English is based on professional needs, focusing on the cultivation of students' professional learning ability. In today's economic globalization and educational internationalization, in order to meet the needs of international construction, colleges and universities need to transform their traditional teaching aims and cultivate their academic abilities in English research. The organic collection of academic and general English will promote the development of College English teaching. Although there will be irresistible resistance in the process of development, it is still the direction of the development of English Teaching in universities and colleges in our country.
