Multimedia-assisted foreign language teaching could combine the features of text, sound, image and animation into one, which helps create a good language learning situation, maximize the motivation and initiative of students' learning and enhance the teaching efficiency. Multimedia equipment-assisted teaching is a teaching method that many foreign language teachers are exploring and trying. However, some front-line teachers still have a vague understanding of it and lack theoretical guidance. The situation of foreign language teaching is quite different from other forms of foreign language teaching. Foreign language teaching in most schools meets the needs of entrance examination to a large extent. As a result, university teachers began to take the road of multimedia-assisted teaching in foreign language teaching in universities, that is, to take the advantages of different schools of teaching methods, to remove the shortcomings of each school of teaching methods, and use multimedia equipment to assist teaching, exploring a teaching method that can not only adapt to the development of the times, but also effectively promote the improvement of college students' foreign language proficiency. Through the investigation of the application of multimedia-assisted teaching in foreign language teaching, it verified several problems in foreign language teaching, and designed the application of multimedia platform, so that multimedia equipment-assisted teaching can be reasonably used in foreign language teaching, and cultivate students' cross-cultural communication. At the same time, students should be motivated to participate actively in learning practice so as to improve the quality of foreign language teaching.
