With the continuous development of information technology, multimedia teaching has become an important means in college English teaching. The purpose of this paper is to explore the influence of multimedia teaching on college students' English listening, speaking, reading and writing, as well as the common problems in multimedia teaching application and suggestions for improvement. Through analyzing the existing literature and empirical research, this paper finds that multimedia teaching has significant advantages in improving students' listening, speaking, reading and writing abilities. The rich audio-visual materials and interactivity provided by multimedia teaching strengthen the frequency and quality of language input and output, and thus improve the comprehensive language application ability of students. There are also some problems and challenges in multimedia teaching, such as the limitations of equipment conditions and the requirements of teachers' professional quality. Therefore, in order to give full play to the advantages of multimedia teaching, it is necessary to strengthen teacher training, update teaching concepts and improve teaching facilities. In short, multimedia teaching plays an important role in improving the English level of college students, and is worthy of wider application and development in college English teaching.
