The teaching of English to non-native English Young Learners requires more attempts rather than teaching learners in older ages. Nowadays, technology has offered many benefits for EYL teachers. Technology, in one side, is helpful instrument for the teachers in dealing with EYL. In the other side, easiness offered by technology may bring consequences on the EYL teachers‟ creative competence. EFL university students in the world are now habituated with technology-based teaching and learning media. They are demanded to improve the skill to use those media and due to the demand, their creativity in developing method and technique to teach EYL without technology aids is in a serious jeopardy. At least, they will deal with classic difficulty in teaching EYL for example by using only a written story; the difficulty meant is lacking of idea. This research was accomplished to investigate it. By employing written submission, data from eight last year EFL University students revealed their ideas on using story in teaching EYL is under expectation. By employing descriptive interpretation on their written submission, it is indicated that their ideas are heavily tailored to use technology aids.
