As its international influence is increasing, China tries to establish a new international discourse system to expand consensus with other countries on the purpose of promoting harmonious and common development of mankind. Cultivating college students to tell Chinese stories well in foreign languages is the key intersection of national strategy, talent training and foreign language teaching in colleges and universities and an effective way of cultivating college students’ political virtuous awareness. To tell Chinese stories well, the construction of pedagogical textbooks should be strengthened to provide ample language materials with Chinese stories. Meanwhile, training programs must be offered for college English teachers to complete their knowledge structure and enhance the evaluation mechanism of teaching quality by incorporating elements of Chinese stories into evaluation indicators. Telling Chinese stories well can not only spread Chinese culture and values to the world, but also improve the narrator's intercultural communication ability and build their national cultural confidence.
