Components of intercultural communicative competence include attitudes, knowledge and skills, and more. In high school English teaching, the following strategies can be taken to develop students' intercultural communicative competence. First of all, teachers should pay great attention to teaching cultures. While properly coping with the relationship between language ability and communicative competence, teachers should also focus on the comparison of similarities and differences between Chinese and western cultures, cultivating students' awareness of intercultural communication and sensitivity. Second, teachers must hold a correct view of the relationship between teaching and learning, and develop students' ability of self-learning and self-improvement by means of teaching English knowledge and improving language ability. If permitted, the background of foreign teachers can be efficiently used. Finally, strengthening students' cultural awareness of their native languages is very important, which can be of great help to promote their language and culture competence, thus to cultivate students' intercultural communication ability.
