Nowadays, the use of technologies has swept through every domain in human endeavor and particularly in the field of education. This phenomenon has been influencing everyday classroom practices over the world. Unfortunately, this has not been a reality yet in Benin classes. Therefore, this research work explored and shed light on the opportunities related to the use of the computer in Teaching English as a Foreign Language on the one hand. On the second hand, it strove to diagnose the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities of Benin educational system that can contribute to promote, delay or impede the use of the computer to support English teaching. To easily address the different aspects, the study combined interviews, direct observations plus questionnaires. The findings were far from... smooth and the key issues surrounding them were questioned.
