Based on the academic English textbooks published at home and abroad in recent years, this paper analyzes the characteristics of this kind of textbook. It is found that there are a wide variety of academic English textbooks in our country at present, the reason is that the researchers have not formed a unified writing idea. There is a deviation in the positioning of academic English textbooks. Therefore, on the basis of studying the relevant textbooks both at home and abroad, the author proposed a clear writing idea of academic English, which is making the nature of academic English subject clear, teaching students in accordance with their aptitude, educating students according to their need, the authenticity of material selection, organizing textbooks in a themed format and the development of the digital future. Looking forward to providing some reference for the compilation and use of Chinese Academic English textbooks.
