Based on the stimulus, this paper takes the literature published in SCI, EI, Core journals of Peking University, CSSCI and CSCD in recent years as the main body to analyze the current development status of multi-mode teaching in China. The results show that in recent years, the literature on multi-mode teaching in China has been declining slightly. The author of Zhang Delu has a certain authority in this field and the research results are relatively high. The research results of multimodal teaching have been published in the journal of Foreign Language Electrochemical Research. At present, the research of multi-modal teaching focuses on the research of multi-modal foreign language teaching, multi-modal discourse analysis and multi-modal teaching materials.
