With the gradual enhancement of China's international competitiveness, China's education is constantly facing changes under the background of globalization. While enjoying the multi-disciplinary prosperity endowed by the development of the times, foreign language education must also pay attention to the ability to maintain a clear awareness of the safety culture behind it. Based on the security perspective, this paper explores the cultural security issues in foreign language education, briefly describes the connotation of cultural security in the context of foreign language education, and strives to seek a win-win situation to achieve cultural exchanges between China and foreign countries.
