Cross-cultural communication, in popular terms, refers to what problems should be paid attention to and how to communicate appropriately when dealing with foreigners due to differences in language and cultural background. English idioms are an important carrier of British and American culture, and students can enrich their own cultural knowledge system and enhance their cross-cultural awareness through the study of English idioms. The cultivation of intercultural communicative competence is the key and difficult point in English teaching, which is of great significance to the improvement of students' English level. English idioms, as the essence of language and the epitome of culture, are effective carriers for integrating language system and cultural background knowledge, and also play an indispensable role in cultivating students' intercultural communicative competence. Learning English idioms helps to cultivate students' sense of English language, improve students' aesthetic ability and cultivate students' moral sentiment. At the same time, it also helps to stimulate students' interest in learning English, enhance the effect of English teaching and improve the quality of teaching. Students' cognitive level of English idioms also determines whether they can properly translate English idioms. Therefore, cultivating cross-cultural English idiom ability is very important for students. This paper mainly analyzes the influencing factors in the process of learning English idioms.
