Being under constant political, economical and social change especially after the 90-s our country has had an urgent need to change its education system. So in recent years, the Albanian Government has shown great interest in teaching and learning English in accordance with European standards by amending new laws (law no. 10 307, dated 22.07.2010) to promote English teaching and learning in order to meet the needs and interests of students. In order to make English teaching available for our students it is important to lead EFL teachers towards successful teaching, which means having a well designed lesson plan via well organized objectives. As Agni Malderez and Caroline Bodòczky say in their book (1999, 22), objectives will be addressed concurrently and throughout the course, which means that without objectives there will be no language lesson. So the paper deals with the reasons why teachers need to be upgraded professionally and how objectives help them enhance language teaching in their language classes. The paper also gives answers to the following questions: What principles should the language teachers consider while setting objectives? Why should they follow them? How do students benefit from a well planned lesson plan? Data collection from these questions pointed out the importance of professionalism in teaching English in our schools. Identifying the reasons of the big changes made teachers become aware of their professional development in order to implement contemporary teaching methods.
