Abstract: We live in an age where many of us are well-grounded in the field of education. It is evident that the adult learners are deeply entrenched by the use of technology in their everyday learning. The quality of education has progressed towards a learner- centered approach where the students are given more opportunities to self-learn subjects of their choice. By implementing Brain-Compatible teaching and learning methods with the use of Information and Communication Technology ( ICT) teachers can make their practices more professional and help adult learners meet their optimal level of learning a language to a greater extent. In this context, the study attempts to explore how teachers can make lesson content relevant for students with ICT tools. The main objective of this paper explains how English language teachers can help the adult learners in learning the real world English with the use of technology. Using qualitative method the collected data provides an overview of how the students are benefited and given opportunities to improve their knowledge in a productive way. The article gives an outline of how the use of technology by the students has highly developed their interpersonal skills, social skills and communicative skills which are the need of the hour.
