English teaching mainly covers five interdependent and interrelated basic language skills of listening, speaking, reading, writing and translating. English writing is considered an important part in English output stage, which is often an ultimate goal of language learning. However, the current English writing teaching in China is not so satisfactory, and a disadvantage exists in Chinese traditional approach of writing-focused instruction: Students’ writings often fail to achieve the aim of effective information expression and communication. Cultural linguists, social linguists and cognitive linguists believe that there is an inseparable relationship between language and culture, so cultural connotation of language cannot be ignored in the English writing teaching in order to realize the precise use of language. The paper is attempted to discuss the cultivation of cultural consciousness in the English writing teaching in terms of vocabulary, syntax, and text under the structure of linguistics so as to improve teaching efficiency of Chinese English writing in some sense.
