Foreign language learning is an effective carrier of intercultural communication. And during foreign language learning understanding its culture is inseparable. An intermediate culture between the source language culture and the target language culture, which is called interculturality, can be generated in the process of cultural internalization. On the basis of the intercultural model proposed by X. D. Dai and G. M. Chen, the paper illustrates the four roles of teachers in English teaching from the perspective of interculturality, i.e., motivating emotions, enlightening cognition, guiding behavior and regulating morality.
