Computer-assisted language learning (CALL) is an approach to teaching andlearning languages that uses computers and other technologies to present,reinforce, and assess material to be learned, or to create environments whereteachers and learners can interact with one another and the outside world.This book provides a much-needed overview of the diverse approaches toresearch and practice in CALL. It differs from previous works in that it notonly surveys the field, but also makes connections to actual practice anddemonstrates the potential advantages and limitations of the diverse optionsavailable. These options are based squarely on existing research in the field,enabling readers to make informed decisions regarding their own research inCALL. This essential text helps readers to understand and embrace thediversity in the field, and helps to guide them in both research and practice.
