Abstract: This paper aims to provide language educators with the different way of teaching English. Some aspects of a short story, such as vocabulary, grammar, and moral values could make the learning process entertaining and valuable. This paper will accentuate the tremendous positive impact of using the short story in teaching to promote language acquisition of the students. The article also provides you with some examples of how to use it in teaching, and so teachers will no longer use the short story in teaching only for retelling and learning some new vocabulary. In addition, the paper also presents some challenges which may be faced by ESL/EFL learners when using the short story. For example, the problem of constructing elaborate noun phrases that have been picked up in this paper will help the teacher simplify the complexity of such noun phrases for their students. In a broader context, the teacher may use this paper as a guideline to adjust the teaching material to meet different English proficiency level.
