The Influence of Cultural Differences on Chinese College Students’ Listening Comprehension

Zhipeng LIU


In English listening teaching, the background knowledge of teaching material can help the listener improve listening skills. Traditional teaching neglects the teaching of cultural background knowledge, which influences the effect of listening teaching. Understanding the cultural background can help us better understand western culture and improve the effect of listening, thus improving the teaching efficiency. It should also be an important task for students to understand the cultural differences between the east and the west. In view of the current situation of students’ lack of western culture knowledge, it is an urgent task to strengthen the teaching of Western culture in language teaching.
