• The unprecedented advances in interactivity and multimedia capabilities together with a
myriad of emerging technologies have enabled the creation of virtual learning
environments that could be utilized to boost the development of English language skills
among Malaysian primary and secondary school students. English lessons that
incorporate multimedia applications can exert powerful motivation and provide bored
students with exciting new ways to learn. The utilization and integration of ICT tools can
indeed assist students in acquiring English Language competency as well as enhance the
quality of their learning experience. This paper first examines the present scenario of
English language teachers as regards ICT integration and tries to determine if ICT skills of
English language teachers in the light of existing infrastructure facilities are adequate to
promote English language teaching and learning. The researchers next look at some of
the obstacles faced by English language teachers in ICT integration and finally in the
concluding part the researchers suggest the use of interactive lessons to speed up the
teaching and learning of English.

WHY DOES THE AUTHOR CHOOSE THIS
• In this research : I consider that the author choose the quantitative method
because he did not need to make an experiment with teachers about the use
of ICT; he only wanted to know the opinion about teacher through their
journal teaching English with ICT and their experiences about if ICT is
successful or not in the classroom. He researched with different teachers’
ages. I consider that he did not need to make an experiment with the
teachers he only want to realize if teachers take into account the ICT.
