Research has been done to identify and summarize the main English teaching methodologies and related approaches used in the past and the present. Furthermore, as a result of the research, the article highlights some facts, factors and procedures that should be taken into account when selecting the right methodologies for a particular situation. The importance of the Pre-Primary stage for children is also highlighted as it is in this particular period when children are at their maximum potential in terms of language acquisition. Finally, eTwinning is introduced as an innovative platform with different tools for the development, implementation and evaluation of the different methodologies in use (in terms of projects) to teach a second language working along with other teachers across Europe sharing knowledge, experiences, ideas, projects, proposals and new methodologies.
