Teachers' teaching behavior is the key factor of classroom teaching behavior, which mainly includes teachers' teaching behavior, students' learning behavior and interactive behavior. This study is an exploratory study. Based on the analysis framework of teachers' teaching behavior, this study aims to explore the teaching behavior patterns and existing problems of English normal students by tagging and analyzing three videos of English normal students' competition, and provide clues for subsequent research and pre-service training of normal students. The preliminary study found that in the competition, the three English normal students have strong classroom teaching practice ability, but they are still different from the real classroom and lack of innovation. This provides thinking for the pre-service training of English normal students.
