Notwithstanding the many opportunities of learning offered to further the EFL learners’ knowledge and skills needed throughout life, the majority of learners often associate learning with formal education at school, college or at university.

Lifelong learning is but one method to keep pace with the new perspectives of education and maintain a positive attitude towards learning both for personal and professional development. Hence, the present talk problematises how may the philosophy of lifelong learning promote innovation and change in the EFL teaching/learning process.
