We often adjust to them in order to survive. The persisting global economic crisis has resulted in a global social crisis which is relected in human values, preferences, treatment and communication. Technological inventions have impro-ved our lives to a great extent. On one hand, they enable us to communicate at any time with people from different parts of the world. They save our time and money. Keeping in touch with our old friends via Facebook and Skype and making new friendships is also possible thanks to modern communication media. On the other hand, new technologies and the way of life in modern society has conditioned social change that involves change in social structure, social behaviour, social relations and communities of people. Social change in our perception results in negative side-effects caused by the way of life in over-modernised and over-digitalised society. As a result, people make “fake” digital friends, create digital marriages and families. At school, teachers and their learners are surrounded by the latest technological inventions that are expected to make their lessons more interesting and eficient for a technologically-spoilt audience. All these modern devices are more likely to address our pupils and ease their learning. In spite of that, they are not perfect and unbeatable either because they cannot cover what a human being is able to do: to express feelings and show empathy. School as a primary educational institution should relect the current social, economic, political situation in order to prepare learners for life. Currently the knowledge of more than just one foreign language is considered as the main priority to live a fruitful and comfortable life. Language teachers face the challenge to introduce the most appropriate teaching methods, approaches, techniques and activities to produce communicatively competent users (rather than knowers) of a foreign language who are able to exchange information, negotiate meanings and conduct meaningful, luent, grammatically accurate and socially and culturally appropriate conversations with other users of the same target language. Therefore, one of the biggest challenges of language teachers remains the task to instruct their learners in the shortest time possible via using the most eficient and least harmful tricks to prepare independent users of a foreign language for their personal and professional spheres of life.
