English students majoring in non-English disciplines always lack motivation in learning the language. Traditional classroom teaching not only fails to ignite the enthusiasm of college students in the new era but also creates a disconnect from reality, further diminishing their interest in learning. This study attempts to introduce multimodal translation into university classrooms, believing that utilizing new technologies and media can achieve the following objectives: 1. stimulate the interest of non-English major students; 2. help students master the comprehensive English ability; 3. better understand languages as a carrier of culture, and be a more confident communicator when discussing their own culture in English.
