With chalk-and-talk instruction being replaced by MCMs, English language teachers from the Philippines are driven to re-plan lesson designs for students, who are likely to work overseas, to successfully operate in sociolinguistically diverse environments – a diaspora of skilled Filipino workers seeking employment in largely work-providing English speaking foreign countries. Initially, this paper attempts to present pedagogic strategies for covering application of MCMs to the teaching of English using discourse grammar-based materials from experience at De La Salle University at Dasmarinas, Philippines. It discusses MCMs’ influence on second language learners’ interlanguage phenomena. With it comes the argument that there is more to using MCMs as mere teaching embellishments. It then explores the confines of context-sensitive discourse grammar and how they could be effectively framed using multimedia tools and social network sites. It finally broaches issues on achieving meaningful language instruction via the remarkable connectedness of E-learning and ELT.
