With the development of economic globalization, international exchanges of politics, economy and culture have become more frequent, and China's connections with the world economy have become increasingly close. As a cradle for training high-quality talents, many universities in China have proposed to train college students with an international vision and can participate in international exchanges and cooperation. Most of the college students in our country have received many years of English education, but there are very few students who can participate in international exchanges smoothly, it is inseparable from the teaching mode of English teaching in China, English teaching in most colleges and universities in China generally read according to the book, in addition, students lack opportunities for English practice, as a result, it is difficult for students to improve their English communication level. As an important way of expression and learning in English, English speaking plays an important role in the course learning because of its strong interest and high practicability, therefore, it is necessary to offer speaking courses in the teaching of college English humanities elective course. This paper focuses on the related contents of the construction of college English public speaking courses, in order to provide some references for the university to offer English speaking elective courses.
