Production-oriented Approach (POA), a teaching method in English language teaching, adopts practical language usage scenarios, pays attention to students’ language output, promotes students to master the English language and its culture through practice, and improves their language application abilities. This article took college English teaching in normal universities as the background and explored the application of POA in English language teaching, aiming to improve students’ grades and English communication skills, and provide new ideas for language teaching. This article mainly applied experimental methods and questionnaire surveys to conduct relevant data statistics on the application of this method in college English teaching. The survey results showed that 93% of people agreed with using output oriented methods to improve English, and the majority of respondents were willing to try using output oriented methods.
