Cultural cognitive ability in foreign language teaching profession gradually receives attention. Cross-cultural communication competence and cultural cognition competence have become an important measure for the ability of modern foreign language talents. From the perspective of cultural cognition, this paper studies the English cultural learning disabilities caused by cultural default and through the corresponding empirical research, it suggests reasonable and effective coping strategies to solve the difficulties of English culture learning, to cultivate Students’ exotic culture cognitive ability, to readjust students’ cultural cognition construction and satisfy the requirement for communicative foreign language talents under the global cultural context.
