Computer-assisted language learning (CALL) is an approach to teaching and
learning languages that uses computers and other technologies to present,
reinforce, and assess material to be learned, or to create environments where
teachers and learners can interact with one another and the outside world.
This book provides a much-needed overview of the diverse approaches to
research and practice in CALL. It differs from previous works in that it not
only surveys the field, but also makes connections to actual practice and
demonstrates the potential advantages and limitations of the diverse options
available. These options are based squarely on existing research in the field,
enabling readers to make informed decisions regarding their own research in
CALL. This essential text helps readers to understand and embrace the
diversity in the field, and helps to guide them in both research and practice.
