The phenomenological aspects of string theory are
emphasizing the different perspectives before and after 1995.
In particular the
brane-world scenario, which is currently under intense investigation,
is briefly introduced.
The presentation is at an elementary level in order to cover
most of the material and to hopefully make it
understandable to a wider community.
