As an emerging educational concept, OBE organizes, implements and evaluates education centered on the expected learning output, which is the structure and system of the learning output driving the entire course activities and student learning output evaluation. Based on the OBE concept, the teaching reform of English majors truly reflects the student-centered, practical application as the goal, and fully taps the potential of students. The research content of this paper mainly includes three aspects: First, the implementation process of the OBE concept is studied, including four steps of "defining learning output, realizing learning output, assessing learning output, and using learning output". The second is to analyze the core literacy composition of English majors, including five aspects of "language ability, thinking ability, cultural character, learning ability, and communicative ability". The third is to put forward the paths and strategies for improving the core literacy of English majors: cultivate innovative thinking ability, use the network to expand core literacy, play the role of practical teaching, innovate teaching evaluation methods, and focus on cultivating autonomous learning ability.
