Abstract
With the rapid development of technology and society, the main stream of world development is the globalization. The communication among people from different cultures has become more and more frequent. So every field is in desperate need of people who are familiar with foreign cultures and capable of communicating accurately and appropriately in cross-cultural situations. The army is no exception. It needs lots of foreign language talents who have the cross-cultural awareness and intercultural communicative competence. However, the situation of culture teaching in most military academies is unsatisfied and many cadets lack cross-cultural awareness. In this paper, the author puts forward some suggestions on the cultivation of cross-cultural awareness of cadets.
