Abstract
With further development of globalization and the increasingly close economic and cultural exchanges between China and foreign countries, there are new higher requirements for college English teaching and learning in China. One of those is an urgent need to cultivate college English learners' sufficient intercultural communicative competence. However, the very existence of Chinese Culture Aphasia makes it hard to meet such demand. Even if some teachers have consciously involved culture teaching in their classes, a serious imbalance between western culture teaching and the students' home culture remains there. To eliminate the influence of this aphasia, some researchers and experts propose incorporating English translation of Chinese classics into college English teaching. Based on this, this paper presents not only how to integrate English translation of Chinese classics in college English teaching for non-English major students, but also sharing some of its enlightenments as well as exploring some challenges in teaching practice.
