One of the current but unknown topics for new English teachers’ generation is the Postmethod condition. Its correct use causes a great impact on the teaching and learning process,
for this reason it has been considered as the starting point of a new era in respect to pedagogy specifically for some eastern countries. This is not a research article, but it is more oriented to reflect upon Kumaravadivelu’s ideasand the current situation of the Postmethod Condition in Colombia, as well as, to invite ELT teachers to become part of a “new pedagogical era”. It concludes that Postmethod is a good option to rethink about our Language Teaching practice in order to contribute to a real and authentic pedagogicalepoch.
