2016 witnessed the inclusion of English for Academic Purposes (EAP) into “College English Curriculum Requirements” by the Ministry of Education. Writing ability, essential for EAP, matters much for international academic activities and professional exchanges. To satisfy the cultivation of students’ academic writing, language teachers should reflect and brave up for challenges in a timely manner during the transition from English for General Purposes (EGP) to EAP, and actively plan their own professional development. Responses of 38 teaching institutions from 27 countries to this survey are pooled in this paper to analyse the role of language teachers in the teaching of academic writing, providing insight for promoting EAP in China.
