Wang and Cheng examine the factors affecting teachers in the implementation of English as a foreign language (EFL) curriculum. The data collected via a structured questionnaire from over two hundred EFL teachers at six universities in China show that there are six significant external and internal factors that predict teachers’ curriculum implementation. Wang and Cheng conclude that curriculum implementation in the Chinese EFL context is of a complex nature and successful implementation requires teachers to play multifaceted roles.
