The focus of current foreign language teaching is to cultivate students' cultural awareness. The ultimate goal of foreign language teaching is to cultivate students' intercultural communicative competence, and cultural empathy competence is the most important factor in the intercultural communicative competence system, which will directly affect the quality, effect and process of intercultural communication. In the process of intercultural communication, people begin to realize that the cultural empathy competence is the most important part of the intercultural communication system, which will directly affect the quality, effect and process of intercultural communication. In English teaching, the education and training of cultural empathy competence is an indispensable part in cultivating students' comprehensive English competence. Reaching the ideal state of empathy is not an overnight process, but a long process of psychological adaptation and behavioral identification, which determines the nature of difficulty and long-term of cultural empathy. Therefore, in English teaching, teachers should not only teach language knowledge, but also impart cultural knowledge, guide students to realize the differences and similarities between Chinese and western cultures, cultivate students' intercultural communication awareness through multiple ways, and skillfully guide students to carry out cultural empathy, so as to improve the effect of English teaching.
