Chinese language education refers to Chinese language and culture education conducted mainly for overseas Chinese and overseas Chinese whose mother tongue or first language is not Chinese. By its nature, we can see that language and culture are inseparable, and language is the carrier of culture. This makes it clear that no matter what language teaching method we choose, the teaching of language will involve the teaching of related cultures. At the same time, as the essence of China's traditional culture, ancient poetry contains the rich cultural heritage of Chinese civilization and long-standing historical tradition, which is the crystallization of Chinese traditional culture. With the continuous development of Chinese language education, the teaching of ancient poems has become an important part of Chinese language education and plays a pivotal role in the teaching of Chinese language. Therefore, this paper will focus on the status, current situation and teaching methods of teaching ancient poems to explore how to better apply ancient poems to the teaching of Chinese as a foreign language in the classroom, and how to appropriately integrate some cultural teaching into the language teaching at the same time to help improve students' interest in learning.
