With the rapid development of society and the explosive growth of knowledge, students need to have more capabilities to adapt to the changing environment. Traditional curriculum design often pays too much attention to knowledge teaching, and ignores the core literacy of students. Therefore, the core literacy as the educational goal is essential to the improvement of students' comprehensive quality. From the perspective of tourism English disciplines, let's talk about how to use the core literacy of the subject as the teaching goal in teaching design and how to reflect the core literacy teaching goals in the teaching process design. According to the "Tourism English Curriculum Standards", students are required to have a certain comprehensive ability to use English for communication, especially listening and speaking skills, to achieve the English proficiency required for general tourism industry. This paper can help students get familiar with the working procedures and standards of inbound and outbound tourism, master the English communication conversations of each working process, master the specific expressions of tourism vocabulary and tourism English, have daily oral conversations with foreign tourists, briefly introduce relevant tourist attractions and cultural topics to foreign tourists in English, and lead tourist groups on outbound tourism, improving students' professional and English proficiency. Therefore, in the design of tourism English teaching, we should highlight the achievement of core literacy goals.
