Abstract: Nowadays, technology and the English language are crucial in business. The National Information Technology Committee launched a policy emphasizing the importance of information technology as the driving instrument for the country’s development, both social and economic. Therefore, if a University wants to produce graduates qualified to meet market needs, it should establish policies that enable instructors to use technology and English for teaching. The School of Accountancy, University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce, has encouraged instructors to use programs for teaching, such as Microsoft Excel, SAP, Express, ACL and Yahoo Group to enable students to appropriately and effectively apply technology in accounting. The School of Accountancy also encourages the inclusion of English Language in class, and to have exercises in English for students to try. In addition, the school has initiated a project called “Star of Accountancy” specifically for students who choose to study accounting using English Textbooks. The author believes the students who join this program would be skillful and able to benefit from knowledge acquired in the future. The author therefore applied to teach Fundamentals of Accounting to first year for accountancy students during the first semester of the academic year 2008/2009. Fifty students chose to join this project. The book chosen was Financial Accounting (6th Edition) by Jerry J. Weygandt, Paul D. Kimmel and Donald E. Kieso, and published by John Wiley &Sons. It was selected for its updated content and including a website ( for teaching material. Furthermore, the author uses Yahoo Group to make it convenient for students to download materials and to submit their work on-line. As a result of using technology and English together for this subject, most students believed they received a good grounding in addition to other skills.
