Following the huge amounts of studies done on ELT, and due to its rich and expanding literature which is gaining more momentum, this study intends to claim that ELT has found a firm theoretical foundation, ready to be applied to other disciplines. In fact, this study attempts to introduce applied ELT as a new counterpart to theoretical ELT, holding the idea that ELT theorizers and practitioners should draw their attention to this new area in the field. Applied ELT opens a new and promising horizon for researchers to channel their studies into this new aspect of ELT. Moreover, this paper considers English language learning classes to be sites of dealing with issues related to life qualities. In the end, a new map of doing research in the field has been drawn to guide the researchers to apply ELT to different domains of knowledge.
