Personal experiences in ESL learning underlines the fundamental obligation to change teachers' roles in the 21st century for a quality education and justifies the failure of the Lecturer Role on an international scale. Moreover, English lessons were not sufficient enough to fulfill the learner's aim therefore, international language travels were quite common to establish and to contribute for a professional development in communication. Although, the changes in ESL learning in the 21st century is obvious, teachers' should continuously analyze and review different approaches towards providing a quality education.

Technology trains students for the Future. Technology, with its resources, in the classroom would help prepare them for the digital future. These 21st century skills are indispensable in order to be flourishing in this era. Education isn’t just about memorizing facts and vocabulary words; it’s about solving complex problems and being to collaborate with others in the workforce.

1. INTRODUCTION It is well known that education plays a very important role in every segment of human life and work, so educational institutions are under the constant influence of complex changes occurring in the local and global environment. Higher education institutions (HEIs) are expected to play a central role in resolving the challenges of the 21st century because they are crucial for the development of a knowledge-based economy and the advancement of the society as a whole (Radošević et al, 2011). Unfortunately, the challenge faced by today 's educators seems to be somewhat impossible. They must provide educational services that meet growing global social and business requirements, with a reduction in funding and support.
Similarly, the online classroom has become a new way of communications in modern society. It is a convenient way that people make teaching video on the Internet, spread and learn from each other. But, is it really suitable for all students? Does it have its limitations compared to the traditional classroom?

The equal opportunities have become the major concern of the policy makers at this stage. However, even when the students enroll for the postsecondary education, they tend to face a wide range of barriers, including the lack of professionalism among the staff, the lower expectations, the physical demands. Under the mentioned conditions, one of the essential requirements to the education developers are the “improvements in assistive technology” (Herring, 2012, p. 29).

From entertainment to education, technology permeates every aspect of life - but how should society use this powerful new tool? The world is already moving in the technological direction, but is society preparing future generations for this new age of information? Although some claim that it is primarily a distraction, technology should have more emphasis in education, because it is beneficial to learning, and will continue to be an important aspect of the future world. The first example of technology’s educational benefits is its’ positive impact on students’ creativity, cooperation, and motivation to learn.
It is worth emphasizing that ICT activity may cause some changes in the teacher’s activity as well as the students. Somehow, there might be issues that need to be considered to implement the integrating of ICT in teaching and learning process. It must be completely good if teachers can fully utilize whatever resources that is available in order to give benefits to students. All the limitations that might be faces are good if it be taken as a challenge and not the reason to not giving the best. ICT integration in teaching and learning process in Malaysia might not be fully developed as compared to the other developed countries but it is good that we already in the effort to make things
The term “21st century” has now become the integral part of education in order to develop one’s high critical thinking skills and is in a plan for a comprehensive instruction. Future educators and heads of huge institutions are in a search for an effective and sufficient way of instruction to prepare the students’ capacity to perform extra and fast transformation of education’s evidently moving hastily than yesterdays. A lot of studies indicate that the old way of teaching or should we say the “Traditional Educational System” won’t make it to the top forever. Also, the authoritarian teacher will not work as for today’s learners’ need. What’s in the 21st century English learning is a student-centered classroom setting wherein engagement will play one of the biggest roles inside the class.
