Abstract
A teacher’s choice of a method or a combination of methods depends on a variety of factors including the course book. The success of a lesson largely depends on the innovation and adaptability of the teacher. In fact, the emergence of different methods points to a dialectical process where new methods are constantly evolving. Every ESL/EFL class, in this context, has the potential to create a new method, depending on the intuition and innovation of the teacher and the response of the students. Teachers should make use of the possibilities of technology in English language teaching and learning. For a motivated techno-geek learner, a Luddite teacher is a slowcoach. The active, joint engagement of students and teacher leads to a dynamic classroom environment in which teaching and learning become rewarding and enjoyable. This paper examines the need for teaching and learning strategies coupled with technology in ELT.
