Abstract: Education is one of the many fields in which Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has made remarkable achievements in the past decade. The introduction of different ICT tools has made life easier for students and teachers alike. ICT has not only changed the way science subjects are taught but also has changed teaching methods for language and art subjects. Many tools such as: projectors, smart boards, tablets, and other ICT tools have made dramatic changes in the way English Language is taught, especially in countries where English is not a primary language. This study encompasses the impact of ICT tools on teaching English as a Second Language (ESL). It further considers the ways in which ESL has been implemented, succeeds and fails within the confines of Kuwait through a qualitative and quantitative process of interviewing teachers as well as obtaining questionnaires from students and teachers in ICT classrooms and observing students in both types of classrooms. That means two classes at the same grade in specific school is being taught the same contents but once with ICT tools and other with traditional teaching methodology and vice versa. The results of the study have indicated that teachers are trying to make the most out of the available ICT tools to teach and the students are enjoying this new technique for learning English. With the help of ICT, teachers are teaching the English language with relative ease which is adding quality to the teaching methodology. Students are enjoying ESL learning and their involvement in the process and it is making them learn even more. It should however be noted that there were some cases in which teachers were not trained enough to effectively help students use ICT in the classroom.
