An Analysis of Strategies for Improving Intercultural Communicative Competence in English Teaching in Secondary Vocational Schools

Hongyan Cui


English in secondary vocational schools emphasizes the cultivation of students’ core qualities such as language ability,
cultural awareness, thinking quality and learning ability. The development of cross-cultural communication skills not only provides
students with more opportunities for personal development, but also helps them establish a sense of community with a shared
future for mankind and a sense of multiculturalism, form an open and inclusive attitude, deepen their understanding of the culture
of the motherland, enhance their patriotism, and strengthen their cultural confidence. Therefore, teachers should actively explore
the countermeasures of cultivating students’ intercultural communication ability in vocational English teaching.
