The purpose of language learning is to communicate. Undoubtedly, lexical teaching also serves this purpose. The social communication among human beings is not only a language phenomenon, but also a cross-cultural phenomenon. We must first understand what culture is before we contrast the two kinds of cultural communication. The narrow sense refers to literature, music, art, etc, while its broad sense is a sociological term, which refers to the total pattern of special faith, habit, system, target and technique in a certain society. However, the cultural difference between Chinese and English is normally not available to students.
