The purpose of this study was to identify the relationship among English educational major college students' self-efficacy, learning engagement and academic performance, and to identify the mechanisms of academic self-efficacy and learning engagement on academic performance, so as to provide data support for improving the academic performance of English educational major college students, and to help them improve their academic self-efficacy and learning engagement. In this study, 460 questionnaires were distributed to English educational major college students in Normal universities directly under Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China, and 320 were validly returned. Statistical analysis, correlation analysis and regression analysis were conducted on the data using SPSS25.0 program. Academic self-efficacy has a direct effect on both academic performance and learning engagement of college students. Learning engagement and its three sub-dimensions all have a direct effect on college students' academic performance. Learning engagement partially mediates the mechanism by which academic self-efficacy affects academic performance. In order to improve the academic performance of English education undergraduates, attention must be paid to the development of academic self-efficacy and commitment to learning.
