The article aims at exploring the ways of learning English ill a non-native background and the limitations of effective teaching in a non-native country like Bangladesh. An attempt has been made at the very beginning of the article to differentiate between the process of learning a first / native language and the process of learning a second / target language for the learners' better understanding of the ways of learning English. Causes of failure for both the learners and the teachers have been identified and ways have been suggested to overcome the problems. Effective teaching techniques have been discussed and suggestions have been made for effective English Language Teaching at the tertiary level in Bangladesh.
