The study will closely combine teaching practices with the teaching exploration for Achang ethnic students in Western Yunnan. It focuses on their learning environment under the multicultural background, and investigates the attitude, motivation, strategies, anxiety and the countermeasures of their English learning. The research puts forward some assumptions: Achang students are greatly affected by the traditional concepts, external environment and their learning attitudes, motivations, strategies and anxiety. Under this assumption, their learning efficiency and further development will be naturally affected. As a result, the students can hardly obtain better results and reach a balance among the various subjects. Therefore, the educators should take practical measures and strategies to help them learning English happily and efficiently.
