This research aims to study identity change of English language learners in foreign language classes at the university in Islamic Countries in the Middle East. The case study is Pakistan where English is taught as second language in its universities due to being under the colonial of UK in the past. English language is considered as the second language in this country because Pakistan used to be the colony of the UK and hence English had been the formal language there for long times and now it is still considered and taught as the second language. It is why the researcher has chosen this context for her research. This article explores the impact of English as the second language on identity of Pakistani students at the university. Forty (45) students who were studying English as second language in a College in Pakistan participated in this research.
