Abstract


Whether to use or not new technology inside the classroom has always been discussed for various reasons. Nowadays, technology is becoming an integral part of everybody's life (Hongling & Zhang, 2012). Considering the benefits that the use of new technologies could provide to people, especially those for learning English, research on this topic has been deemed worthwhile. Having in mind the counter-arguments, the present paper aims to investigate the advantage of using new technology in a class, and most importantly, how to use it and promote learning, advantages and disadvantages of using new technology in the classroom, how to encourage students to use IT appropriately, and exploring some of the best ways to teach and learn English language (Hermans et al. 2008).

Keywords: New technology, learning English, classroom, teachers, advantages and disadvantages.
