Teaching and Learning English as a Foreign Language

Thara Mahmoud Ali Al-oglah


The teaching and learning of a specific language whether it's considered foreign or second, has changed throughout
the years. It began to transfer from a setting where the teacher was the basic and the role model into a setting where
the learner would become the center or the focus. If we take in consideration all of these findings, methods, and
approaches, in addition to the experiences which were created and further emphasized in an environment where
learning will take place. Then this language would be used anywhere to create a sense of engagement. Particularly, in
certain tasks which are of communicative nature while focusing on the interactive aspect. There had been a change in
the way foreign languages came to be taught. That is, from the way the foreign language would be specified to a
certain approach where we would calculate the competence and the performance of a learner. This has led to a shift
from the tutor being the figure of authority, the specialized person, and the role model into the facilitator where he
would guide students in the learning process to bring about change. The enhancements of today's time tend to focus
on social media in addition to the current research being carried out. Moreover, public pedagogy is also very
important and always creates a path towards constructing, bettering and increasing the level of competence of the
learner when acquiring a specific language.
