ABSTRACT
This article explains that the U.S. is in the threshold of technological innovations in the elementary teaching of the English language. Electrical invention and mass production techniques have contributed powerful forces for changing and improving the work of English classrooms. Radio programs and motion pictures convince Americans that English is a living language that cannot be taught in isolated classroom cubicles. English teachers must recognize the interest of boys and girls in the meaning of automobiles, airplanes, streamlined train, skyscrapers, bridges, and intercontinental highways.
