    “My grandson, who is eleven years old now, liked to listen to radio plays. He lied down on the floor, stared at the ceiling and listened. He listened to some radio plays also several times in a row. When he discovered cartoons in a while, he didn’t listen to radio plays anymore. He listened to them only when he was sick and wasn’t allowed to be in front of the screen” (Sajko, 1995: 737). Radio plays were very interesting to the people once and they listened to them very often. Today, we have completely forgotten about them. More and more children do not even know what a radio play is, because – as R. Sajko writes – it was left in the shade of the cartoon. M. Grosman (2006) also speaks about the relationship between the literature and the cartoon. She believes that children have numerous forms of digital entertainment at their disposal today. Thus, they achieve pleasure and are not dedicated to reading anymore. Reading is not taken for granted for them anymore and they are even ashamed of reading in a way. From the day of their birth, children are offered numerous cultural structures: visually supported narratives in cartoons, computer games, and toys. In the 1930s, cartoons started to criticize social conditions and values. Before that, this had been the task of the book and, thus, the interested in reading declined. Cartoons do not induce linguistic action but only passive following. Thus, they cause linguistic deficits, they do not offer time to think to spectators and they only induce them to their passivity and they prevent the creation of one’s own imagination. In the first part of the master’s thesis, I will write about the listening, about the radio play, its development, characteristics, types, its history, and the radio play in Slovenia. I will mention some more successful, i.e. famous, radio plays and their authors in Slovenia. Then, I will pay my attention to Frane Puntar and the radio play Vzorček. I will also research to what extent the radio play is still present in the curriculum today and which objectives are reached by it. In the research part of the master’s thesis, I will describe the project which I will perform with the students of the fifth grade of the nine-year elementary school. I will perform a few meetings with the students. In the process, we will record the radio play Vzorček. Then we will play it on the school radio. Within this project, I will use the causal non-experimental method and the qualitative research approach. The method of sampling for the needs of the research will be non-coincidental purposive. It will include approximately ten children from the fifth grade of the elementary school, aged ten or eleven years. The goal of the research will be for the children to learn and understand the radio play Vzorček. Then we will record it and play it on the school radio. Thus, I will try to induce an interest among the students and the teachers of the school again for the radio play and for the projects which will include a radio play.
