My paper discusses about the complicated role of English teacher in the contemporary era. It throws light upon the important steps, latest technologies and innovative methods to be adopted by the teachers while teaching English. Gone are the days where education was teacher-centered where students were just passive listeners. Now the teaching of English is learner-centered. Teachers are committed to their students and their learning. Teachers are responsible for managing and monitoring student learning. Though the importance of English is well known many still neglect learning English. A language is a systematic means of communication by the use of sounds or conventional symbols. It is the code we all use to express ourselves to communicate with others. As we all know English is very useful as it is a means of communication. Moreover a strong command of the English language will lead to higher paying jobs, more social mobility, and a great deal of social success. My paper tries to depict the role of English teacher not just as a guide, motivator and evaluator but also as a facilitator. English is a link language. This paper also discusses about the importance of four skills Reading, Listening, Writing and Speaking.
My paper concludes discussing about the changing roles of English teacher and it also discusses about the emergence of English as the Universal Auxiliary Language in this age of globalization.
