Modern English learners are in a period of multi-cultural coexistence. In modern English language courses, it is a key task to help learners build cultural cognition. In order to achieve the dual benefits of cultural cognition and language use, we must guide English teaching from the perspective of adaptation, and create a multicultural context in modern English classroom, such as multicultural role-playing, debate, language communication and so on. The ability of writing and reading enables learners to “choose” Chinese in an increasingly changeable context. However, today's foreign language learners are more and more inclined to weaken their bilingual ability, thus forming a sense of cultural alienation. We should help learners form a correct outlook on life and improve the use of their mother tongue. Therefore, teachers should educate learners to be aware of the possibility of this situation and take positive preventive measures; In the process of cultivating students' national cultural awareness and cultural mission, students must maintain a high degree of cultural awareness and self-confidence in the process of learning. Establish appropriate cultural identity.
