Due to the influence of large class teaching and exam-oriented education, Chinese students’ English learning, often intercultural communication ability, is weak; however, with the advancement of globalization, China, which is increasingly involved in international affairs, plays an increasingly important role in the world.  For applied Chinese and Western countries in the values, social system and cultural differences, there are often cultural conflicts in the actual communication and communication barriers. Therefore, it is crucial for Chinese students to enhance their awareness of intercultural communication, enhance their sensitivity to cultural differences, and strengthen their ability to process and screen information in intercultural communication. In the epidemic era, English teaching has to face more restrictions, such as social distance, the cultivation of intercultural communication ability is more restricted, and the transformation and upgrading of education is imminent. Based on the met-verse perspective, this paper discusses the competence of intercultural English learners in the epidemic era and aims to provide a direction for the cultivation of English learners’ intercultural communication awareness in future higher education.
