By getting to know that English language learning classes offer some unique features as venues which enable ELT classes not only to provide opportunities for the development of language proficiency but also to set the scene for the nourishment of learners’ other capabilities, talents, emotions and attitudes, and based on the principles of Applied ELT, English for Life Purposes (ELP) is introduced in this study as a new concept in English language teaching. The authors do not at all suggest that language learning should be underrated in English language classes; nor do they intend to rush the learner towards the apogee of success in every aspect of life overnight. The authors’ proposal is merely suggestive of the fact that the goal of a language class should not be language learning per se; rather, inspired by three streams of evidence as to the importance of enhancing life issues in education, the authors give primacy to enhancing learners’ life qualities through the development and application of life syllabuses in ELT classes. Finally, a sample ELP exercise with the aim of enhancing learners’ emotional intelligence is provided as a model for interested researchers.
