Public English teaching, under the background of curriculum ideology and politics, places higher requirements on language skills, culture, and character building. English teachers need to improve their professional quality from the following five aspects. First, in terms of language, teachers should have a deep understanding of the relevant theories of second language acquisition. They should also familiarize themselves with the hits of governance and politics, as well as the popular Internet buzzwords among students. Additionally, they should accumulate ideological and political materials and pay attention to the network subculture popular among students, in order to capture the ideological and political talks. Second, in terms of culture, teachers should change the old thinking of "what I teach, what you catch." Through extensive reading, participation in training, and scientific research, they should acquire knowledge and reserve ideological and political elements. Furthermore, they should grasp the courses and the main learning content of certain majors. Third, in terms of teaching, teachers should explore ideological and political elements. They should formulate curriculum ideological and political plans, effectively use educational resources and technology, and integrate ideological and political thinking into the entire process of class and extracurricular activities. Moreover, they should improve their ability to search and filter the "most relevant" information. Fourth, in terms of evaluation, teachers should learn about relevant government documents and literature. By understanding the concept of curriculum ideology and politics, implementation standards, and current evaluation standards, they can conduct self-evaluation from three aspects: teaching preparation, teaching process, and teaching feedback. Lastly, in terms of specialization, teachers should cultivate self-cognition, form good habits, improve cultural accomplishment and comprehensive quality, and develop a sound personality. They should keep abreast of curriculum ideological and political policies and research trends. Lastly, they should transform their role from being a lecturer to becoming a participant and learner, in order to deepen the sense of cooperation.
