Abstract: A case study conducted in Thailand shows that teaching informational texts using technological devices like listening and comprehension CDs, tape recorders and the Internet can help English Language Learners (ESL) overcome some of their learning difficulties. Evidence from the study suggests that such a pedagogical approach not only improves the comprehension of informational texts but also students’ mastery levels of spoken and written English.
