- In the Outline of National Medium-and Long-Term Program for Education Reform and Development, the section of higher education pointed out that we should strengthen international communication and cooperation. Drawing lessons from advanced educational ideas and experience in the world, we could promote the education reform and development in China and increase our international status, influence and competitiveness. Adapting to the social and economic request of opening up, we should cultivate plenty of international talents with broad horizons who have a good understanding of international rules and can participate in international affairs and competitions. Meanwhile, we should reinforce the education for international understanding and promote the intercultural exchange, increasing students’ cognition and understanding of different countries and cultures. Thus, teachers, especially college English teachers, need to deeply understand the importance of culture, constantly enrich their intercultural knowledge, proactively change their teaching methods and set up a concept that language and culture is of equal importance. Besides, they also have to enhance students’ cross-cultural communication competence with effective methods, through which we can keep pace with the times and increase their cultivation of foreign culture.
