Abstract: Multimedia technology refers to the computer-mediated software that integrates text, color, graphical images, animation, audio sound, and full motion video in a single application. Multimedia learning systems offer a potential venue for improving students’ interest, understanding and learning efficiency about the English language. Teachers try to make full use of multimedia to create an authentic language teaching and learning environment where students can easily acquire a language naturally and effectively. However, through teaching assessment system, a platform through which students can anonymously evaluate teachers’ teaching on the web, some limitation and problems of multimedia technology in English teaching is explored. For example, PPT-oriented English class leading to knowledge overlapping and time-wasting; Teachers relying too much on multimedia; Improper design of courseware stimulating distraction; Lacking interaction between teachers and students. Only when the multimedia teaching in college English is reformed and improved, can the function of multimedia assisted teaching play its best role. Aiming to optimize the function of multimedia in college English teaching, both the problems and countermeasures of applying multimedia in college English teaching are studied elaborately in this paper, which provides a theoretical basis and new way of teaching practice for the situational teaching of foreign language.
