Contemporary Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL) is a comprehensive,one-volume work written by leading international figures in the field focusingon a wide range of theoretical and methodological issues. It explains keyterms and concepts, synthesizes the research literature and explores theimplications of new and emerging technologies.

'The current volume amply demonstrates that CALL has developed massively interms of the expertise it can draw upon. The authors in this book are highlyregarded as experts and most if not all have spent long years researchingtheir chosen topics. If we were to compare this work with one of even a decadeago, the differences would be resounding... This contextual understanding andattention to detail is evident chapter by chapter, topic by topics in thisvolume. Cumulatively, the text represents a huge resource for anyone involvedin the research and practice of CALL, both old hands and newcomers alike...This now leads me to what has impressed me so much about this book on topicspresent and accounted for, the discussion is state-of-the-art and written bytop experts in the field. It will not surprise you, therefore, that Iwholeheartedly recommend it to you.' - Professor Mike Levy, The University ofQueensland, Australia.
