The APACALL Book Series covers a wide range of issues in computer-assisted language learning (CALL) and offers opportunities for CALL researchers and practitioners to engage in research and discussion on their areas of interest.
This book explores various facets of CALL and presents the findings of recent work in CALL that are of direct relevance to second language teaching and learning. It addresses issues such as the creation of online learning environments and systems, the importance of cultural contexts, the roles of language teachers, the use of computer-mediated communication (CMC) in teacher development, the impact of collaboration and interaction in CMC environments on second language development and the study of feedback on learners' pronunciation and writing. This volume reflects the diversity of CALL research and practice in a constructive way and provides a valuable resource for applied linguists, researchers, language teachers and teacher trainers.
