Abstract

Environmental education is a lifelong process which handles inter-rational components of the natural world and of that created by man, leading to mandatory management of the natural environment. Shared processing curriculum has advantages as learning English and learning environmental education. We can’t call our English teaching successful if our students, however fluent, are ignorant of world problems, have no social conscience by using their communication skills for international crime, exploitation, oppression or environmental destruction. For this reason there is a growing interest for introducing environmental education in teaching English as a second/foreign language. The purpose of the incorporation of environmental education into teaching English as a second/foreign language is to raise the environmental awareness of global environmental problems. Thus in English languages teaching the positive effects are:

– It facilitates learning new words and their meaning

– It enhances students’ concentration during class

– It reduces tension and fear of foreign languages
