Technology integration in English as a Second Language (ESL) and English as a Foreign Language (EFL) using Technological Pedagogical And Content Knowledge (TPACK) (Mishra & Koehler, 2006) seems to be a new territory for teachers and researchers. For this reason, this literature review explores the use of TPACK in the EFL/ESL classroom. In this review, principles, methods and activities related to English teaching are reviewed and discussed. Also, the foundations of TPACK, activity types and their applications not only in other subject areas, but also in the EFL/ESL area are explored. For this purpose, articles, studies and books were consulted to find literature that explores the integration of technology using TPACK framework. After analyzing 38 sources including journal articles and books, it was concluded that the application of TPACK in English teaching has not been explored in extent. Therefore, more empirical studies need to be done to achieve technology integration in EFL/ESL using TPACK.
