This practical handbook is designed to help language teachers, teacher
trainers, and students learn more about their options for using
computer-assisted language learning (CALL) and develop an understanding of
the theory and research supporting these options.

The chapters in New Perspectives on CALL for Second Language Classrooms
synthesize previous CALL theory and research and describe practical
applications to both second and foreign language classrooms, including
procedures for evaluating these applications. The implementation of CALL at
the institutional level is also addressed, with attention to designing
multimedia language laboratories and creating collaborative CALL-based
projects between educational institutions. Although many chapters locate
their descriptions of CALL activities and projects within the ESL/EFL
setting, the principles and activities described are equally useful for
other language settings.

The book does not require prior knowledge of CALL, computers, or software.
To assist readers, a glossary of CALL terms and an appendix of CALL Web
sites are provided. The book also has its own accompanying Web site
( presenting chapter abstracts,
author contact information, and regularly updated links to pedagogical,
research, and teacher development sites.

By integrating theoretical issues, research findings, and practical
guidelines on different aspects of CALL, this book offers teachers multiple
levels of resources for their own professional development, for needs-based
creation of specific CALL activities, for curriculum design, and for
implementation of institutional and inter-institutional CALL projects.
