This article focuses on the goals of teaching English: effective communication in English. It aims to explain methods and approaches for effective teaching. It further examines ways of teaching the learners how to learn effectively. By means of published literature, this article discusses how the concepts of teacher talking, motivation, practical use of the language, and individual interest might help in achieving the goals for teaching English.
