Under the general trend of education reform and educational informationization, English teaching began to seek innovative development paths. At present, in the various media situations, English majors begin to rely more on modern technology, and informal learning has begun to rise in English learning. In informal learning, the learning model based on the English learning app is one of the main manifestations. This mobile learning-based English learning model is currently being sought after by students and has achieved good results. However, based on the requirements to further advance the learning style, relevant scholars need to study it more deeply to ensure a more scientific teaching mode. This paper focuses on the all-round exploration of the informal learning model based on the English learning APP.
