This study adopts the way of questionnaire survey and interviews to search for data. The way of composing questionnaire construction uses Likert Scale, using SPSS 2.0 software to analyze data. According to data, 70% of the students believe that they don't have a good command of solid foundation in oral English and are not enthusiastic to learn. The data the team has collected have veracity and validity and objectively reflect real situation of students. In the meanwhile, the article has a few limitations to some extent because size of the sample isn't very vast. In the face of these problems of oral studying and teaching, students should focus on the accumulation of basic knowledge and acquisition of communicative strategies, teachers should alter teaching methods and implement accurate teaching, school should create an active atmosphere of learning, educational department should improve the evaluative system of teaching and introduce oral test. These suggestions can contribute to enhancement of oral ability for students of medical majors, improvement of teachers' teaching level, the realization of the elite education, satisfaction of the social needs, and designation of English policy.
