In Industry 4.0, the use of technology in second and foreign language learning and acquisition is predominant. This study closely examined how successful EFL learners use the technologies available in Industry 4.0 to enhance their English proficiency, whether through conscious or subconscious efforts. One-to-one, semistructured interviews were employed to collect data from four non-native English speakers (all Indonesian) aged 15 to 18 years old with upper intermediate level of English. It was found out that the respondents make the most of digital devices and internet technologies to improve their English proficiency by (1) using digital devices and accessing Internet content that is mostly in the English language, and (2) developing personal interests such as playing online games involving multiple players from various countries, watching foreign movies with English subtitles, and participating in international fandom communities. This finding suggests that technologies available in Industry 4.0 provide numerous opportunities for respondents to use English in authentic environments.
