This year, the seventh annual TSLL will be held in conjunction with the

- How can multimedia technology enhance listening comprehension?
- How can technology be used to supplement spoken language instruction for
varied student populations from young learners to teens to adults to specific
- In what ways do teacher education programs need to change to help
promote the use of technology for teaching oral communication?
