The new era presents teachers new challenges and responsibilities. The tradition of teaching English has improved dramatically with the inclusion of various types of advanced technology. Technology provides numerous choices such as making teaching interesting and more productive. Technology is one of the most influential boosters of social and language change. Since the use of English has progressed in popularity, the demand for qualified teachers to teach English is unquestionably required. It is true that there are teachers who use 'sophisticated' technology, although most of them still teach in the traditional way. None of these traditional behaviors is bad or damaging to students. In fact, until now they proved it useful too. However, there are various opportunities for students to gain self-confidence to practice and expand themselves, particularly for those who are learning English as a foreign language that learns the language for more than just having fun. If they want to be able to follow the learning process and gain more confidence, they must step into the world of multimedia technology.
