Abstract: During this era of ever developing technological advances we need to use the computer in our classrooms so our students benefit from the most up-to-date teaching aids. There are factors encouraging us to use Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) in class; our student's positive attitude to the novelty and fun of the new software programs is a major one. That we are encouraging student independence is another. Equally, however, there are factors working against the use of CALL and these include budget restrictions, the university authority's attitude towards supporting the teacher to use such technology (as in allowing re-training opportunities), the teacher's fear when faced with something new and unknown. This paper looks at the issues surrounding the use of CALL in language teaching and makes some suggestions, which if implemented, would assist the integration of CALL in the classroom.
