Teaching English as a Foreign Language in Asian context is really a big responsibility for a teacher. Today, teachers and learners live in a technologyenhanced learning environment (TELE), and honestly, teachers find it really difficult to catch up.The role of teachers are shifted from 20th to 21st century role. It is clear that the 21st century classroom needs are very different from those of the 20th century. In the 21st century classroom, teachers are facilitators of student learning and creators of productive classroom environments, in which students can develop the skills they might need at present or in future.The 21st century classroom is created on the premise that students experience what they require to enter the 21st century workplace and live in the global environment.Therefore, teachers can play many roles in the course of teaching and this might facilitate learning.
