With the continuous deepening of education reform, the educational concepts and methods of college teachers have also undergone profound changes. Under the new situation, the development of my country's higher education has entered an era of "people-oriented" and equal emphasis on knowledge and ability. However, English teaching, as one of the talent training directions, faces a series of problems. This article proposes effective countermeasures and suggestions by analyzing the current situation and existing problems of college students' English learning from the perspective of cognitive linguistics; promoting students' overall and healthy growth as a goal-oriented, guiding teachers to change traditional educational concepts and methods to guide practice; improving the level of teacher-student interaction.
