Abstract

By having a thorough understanding of the background of in-depth development of economic globalization and cultural diversification of the 21st century, we can begin to see why the communicative function of a university is put on the research agenda and the reason this topic has attracted much attention. The communicative function as a basic function of modern universities has its own necessity and legitimacy. It plays an important role in training world citizens, promoting communication and integration among civilizations, enhancing multicultural development, regulating social conflicts and advancing world peace and development. Therefore, we should make efforts to develop it through a variety of ways and give full meaning to the communicative function.
