This descriptive theoretical paper is a post method-oriented endeavor, which the goal is to analyze the
characteristic features of the Iranian educational system through an exploration of the two imperative contextual
factors, i.e.; learner and teacher.
Drawing on the work in the fields of World Englishes and English as a lingua franca, this paper will survey some
of the issues that have emerged in contemporary conditions. We argue that a more empirically grounded view of
English would begin to enable us to enrich our description and analysis for curriculum and pedagogic purposes.
