Introduction: A lesson plan is a set of notes that helps us to think through what we are going to teach and how we are going to teach and taking into consideration many elements such as, students learning styles, previous knowledge, types of intelligences, interests and other related issues (Lika, 2017). It guides us during and after the lesson that which things should be added or removed for the next session. This paper shows how planning affects teaching and the quality of learning in EFL classes. Planning is often considered as a key aspect of teaching. During the planning phase, the teacher makes decisions about goals, activities, resources, timing, grouping and other aspects of the lesson (Harmer, 2005as cited in Taylor, 1991). Objective: The purpose of this research is to identify the effectiveness of lesson planning in teaching EFL classes. Method& Material: The research design is qualitative (systematic review). In this research, I searched for the key words which related to my research topic through online scientific sources (ERIC, HinariADRI- Access to Research for Development and Innovation). After refining the articles by (peer review and specified date) among 85 articles, I reviewed twenty articles that mostly related to my research topic (effectiveness of lesson planning in learning process for EFL (English as a foreign language). The articles are between (2005- 2018) years. Results: Twenty articles from 2005 till 2018 year are included in the study which mostly explained the effect of lesson planning in learning process for (EFL). According to Liyanage,& Bartlett, (2010), Language teaching has often been reduced to the mastery of language structures, disregarding the vast number of possibilities that language teaching provides to involve students in the discussion and analysis of issues that affect students everyday life. Shifting language teaching toward this goal, however, has to start in language teacher preparation programs which are all should be considered during planning phase. Conclusion: Many researchers stated their viewpoints on lesson planning for better teaching EFL classes. They discussed that second language teachers are the main core of language teaching; they are the one who creates situation for better learning and paves the way for learners to acquire second language effectively and continuously (Clasquin-Johnson, 2016).
