Abstract
The "bridgehead" strategy and "the Belt and Road Initiative" strategy have transformed Yunnan from a southwestern border area into the front and core of opening the southwestern region to the world. In terms of the reality of social development and education in Yunnan, under the new background of the times, Yunnan is in urgent need of cultivating foreign language talents who can meet the needs of economic and social development. In the current foreign language teaching in colleges and universities in Yunnan, due to a series of reasons such as insufficient interaction time in classes, students' lack of spontaneous learning abilities and insufficient degree of internalization of knowledge and others, there are pervasive problems of over-strengthening the learning of cultural knowledge and weakening the cultivation of the abilities for language outputs and communicative practices. Flipped classroom teaching model uses modern information technology to acquire the cultural knowledge before class and its advantages of using teaching time for experiment, in-class discussion, project training and team cooperation can be used to make up for the weaknesses and deficiencies of traditional foreign language teaching in colleges and universities in Yunnan. This paper attempts to integrate the teaching model of flipped classroom into the teaching of cross-cultural communication courses in colleges and universities in Yunnan to improve students' abilities in cross-cultural thinking and communications, and provides some experience and reference for the application and localization of this new teaching model in the cross-cultural communication courses in Yunnan Province.
