Teachers’ professional development is a continual and dynamic process, in which key competency cultivation is the core. This essay probes into key competencies that EFL teachers in western rural areas should be entitled with, including language knowledge techniques, English course knowledge, teaching cognition ability, teaching planning ability, teaching performance ability, teaching evaluation ability, teaching research ability and humanity literacy. The focus of this essay is the construction of EFL teacher’s key competency cultivation system based on the theoretical construction of teacher’s competency cultivation at home and abroad, on the background of new curriculum standard background, guided by socio-cognitive teacher’s view. Based on this, an integrated cultivation mode cooperated by the government, universities and high schools is put forward, which is a curriculum system infused with pre- and after-service, securing the cultivation process interacted by practice and inner-reflections.
