With the rapid development of information technology, various image based multimodal texts are increasingly used in language teaching. The English Curriculum Standards for Normal High Schools (2017 Edition) first proposed the skill of "viewing", emphasizing the cultivation of students' "viewing" skill in the new era, so as to improve students' understanding of graphics, tables and symbols in multimodal discourse in the multimedia era. In the current high school English classroom, the teaching of "viewing" has not been implemented, and there are many problems to be solved. In order to effectively improve the students' comprehensive language ability and truly integrate the teaching of "viewing" into classroom teaching, this paper proposes the training strategies for language skills "viewing" from four aspects: holistic teaching, practical activity design, resource development and application, and teaching guidance and evaluation. Limited by conditions, these four strategies are mainly from a macro perspective, with the purpose of providing reference for effective teaching of "viewing".
