The primary goal of this project is to provide numerous grammar and vocabulary apps, as well as to explore and assess various approaches for teaching English to non-English speaking students, as well as to evaluate efficient ESL teaching applications for these students. This research may serve as a foundation for the development of new applications for firms operating in the sector. Additionally, teachers may use new tactics in the classroom and online classrooms by utilizing more effective ways and methodologies, as well as the new apps or technologies discussed in this article. Additionally, students are exposed to a variety of applications and their associated possibilities, and the analysis findings might be beneficial in inspiring English as a Foreign Language (EFL) students. Suggestions are presented in this paper for all three groups of stakeholders: teachers, students, and developers. Recommendations for future research topics are provided as a way to develop new strategies and methodologies to create interest in students and to make learning more effective.
