Abstract: The article reports on an evaluative review of the current English Education Program in Turkey by focusing on both strengths and weaknesses identified through the analysis of the program based on the related theories, models and previous empirical research and comparison of the present program with the preceding English language teacher education program. The research paper shows that the program has more weaknesses than the strengths it does. It was seen that pedagogical and theory components are quite well covered. Yet, there are some weaknesses, as well, which can be summarized as being out-of-date, less practically-oriented, and lack of culture specific courses within the program. Consequently, a number of suggestions are offered to the stakeholders in the implications of the critical evaluation. In closing, the study stresses the importance of systematic evaluation for educating and training highly qualified English language teachers and successful foreign language education.
