In today's world which gradually has become a big village, it is almost obligatory to learn at least one foreign language. These developments which happened in such a short period of time have affected, changed and transformed the student type. We are faced with a student type who watches and observes more than its predecessors. Therefore in education in general and in the foreign language education in particular, we have to incline to new quests and have to prepare course schedules which allow students to participate and to be active. Within the scope of this study, the reasons of the quests of new methods will be given. Moreover, making use of theatre in education and instruction will be explained by following the example of Moliere's plays. (C) 2012 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
