The research on the cultivation of innovative talents for college English majors from the global perspective is a hot topic at present. This article briefly describes the connotation of constructivist teaching theory and its significance to college English majors' innovative ability, and explores ways to cultivate college English majors' innovative ability. The teaching ideas for English majors under the guidance of constructivist theory require teachers to change their teaching concepts, pay attention to the cultivation of students' cross-cultural awareness, reform evaluation methods and improve teaching methods. The second is to promote normal students to carry out autonomous learning, cooperative learning and inquiry learning. Third, while paying attention to the grade examination, we should enrich the cultivation of teachers' educational theoretical knowledge and practical teaching ability, shorten the adaptation period of English Teaching in basic education, and lay the foundation for becoming an expert teacher. However, under the guidance of constructivism theory, there are some limitations in the cultivation of innovative talents, which requires colleges and universities to emphasize scientific development in the process of cultivating innovative talents.
