The language is the carrier of culture,which is also an important part of culture. And the language teaching can not be separated from cultural teaching. The ultimate goal of English teaching is not only to cultivate students' language using ability, but also the communicative abilities. However, at present, the English teaching focuses on the language imparting but neglects students' cultural teaching.The article firstly explains the relationship between culture and the language learning, then analyzes the impact of culture on the language communication and English teaching, explores the principles of cultural teaching, and lastly puts forward some strategies to implement the cultural teaching more effectively. Thus, the English teachers should not only focus on imparting necessary language knowledge and skills, but also should attach more attention to fostering students' cultural communicative ability. The article attempts to offer some teaching reference for the English teaching to improve students' trans-cultural communicative ability and ultimately boost the English teaching quality.
