Cardenas-Claros, Monica S.; Gruba, Paul A. – CALICO Journal, 2009
This paper is a systematic review of research investigating help options in the different language skills in computer-assisted language learning (CALL). In this review, emerging themes along with is-sues affecting help option research are identified and discussed. We argue that help options in CALL are application resources that do not only seem…

Taylor, Alan M. – CALICO Journal, 2009
Second language (L2) reading comprehension is generally facilitated by both native language and L2 glosses. However, CALL learning opportunities are still not as common as they should be, and, therefore, the present meta-analysis contributes further evidence supporting the inclusion of more CALL experiences in reading contexts. The present study,…

Ranalli, Jim – CALICO Journal, 2009
A large body of research supports the efficacy of learning strategies employed in the acquisition of second language vocabulary. However, research also indicates that many such strategies are underused or misused by learners and, further, that any effort to integrate learner training in the use of such strategies into classroom instruction faces a…

Chapelle, Carol A.; Heift, Trude – CALICO Journal, 2009
In Spring semester 2006, we conducted a study with 50 learners of German to investigate the use of a new measure (Cardenas-Claros, 2005) for research on the field independent/dependent (FID) cognitive style and CALL use. After the measure was administered, students worked on a CALL program for German that logs interaction. This paper reports the…

Li, Jia – CALICO Journal, 2009
Numerous studies have indicated that the provision of appropriate computer-mediated support to second language (L2) learners results in different vocabulary learning outcomes. However, there is no study available that investigates the transition in their way of learning vocabulary under the influence of technology-based support. This article…

Hsieh, Wen-Ming; Liou, Hsien-Chin – CALICO Journal, 2008
Research articles (RAs) have been recognized as a distinct genre in the English-using discourse community because of their unique writing conventions. Despite the great number of studies on the analysis of the textual or phrasal aspects of abstracts of RAs, few have been transformed into actual teaching materials for EFL graduate students. The…

Li, Kai; Akahori, Kanji – CALICO Journal, 2008
This paper describes the development and evaluation of a handwritten correction support system with audio and playback strokes used to teach Japanese writing. The study examined whether audio and playback strokes have a positive effect on students using honorific expressions in Japanese writing. The results showed that error feedback with audio…

Ma, Qing – CALICO Journal, 2008
CALL evaluation is important because it is the most efficient means to prove CALL effectiveness. While both learning process and learning outcome should be investigated in empirical evaluation, the precise relationship between the two needs to be examined closely. Only by doing so can we identify useful CALL design features that facilitate…

O'Bryan, Anne – CALICO Journal, 2008
While recent studies have found that viewing glosses with multimedia annotations can help students learn and retain vocabulary words (Chun & Plass, 1996; Al-Seghayer, 2001), O'Bryan (2005) found that when providing pictorial glosses for select words within an online reading unit, few students took advantage of the clickable gloss function allowed…

Garrett, Nina – CALICO Journal, 2008
In this article, the author poses what might seem to be a heretical question: Has CALL (Computer-Assisted Language Learning) already begun to lose its identity as a field of inquiry or of practice? And if the answer is a puzzled "maybe," what is CALICO's role to be in, say, the next 25 years? She notes that because most of the tools that support…

Hubbard, Philip – CALICO Journal, 2008
In honor of CALICO's 25th anniversary, this study looks at the presence and collocations of the term "theory" across issues in 25 volumes of the CALICO Journal. Utilizing the electronic versions of articles now available to all subscribers and the built-in search engine on the CALICO website, 244 articles in which the word "theory" appeared were…

Bush, Michael D. – CALICO Journal, 2008
Learning a second language is a challenging endeavor, and, for decades now, proponents of computer-assisted language learning (CALL) have declared that help is on the horizon. As documented not only in the "CALICO Journal" over its 25-year history but also in other scholarly venues, research has demonstrated the value of CALL. Nevertheless,…

Chinnery, George M. – CALICO Journal, 2008
Previous attempts to typify the field of computer-assisted language learning (CALL) have focused explicitly on technology or on trends in language pedagogy. This article offers a practical reexamination of CALL's development, as well as its moniker, and its fundamental best practices. The expression, CALL, is deemed inadequate to describe our…

Winke, Paula; Goertler, Senta – CALICO Journal, 2008
Students' computer access and literacy in the context of CALL has seen very little empirical investigation. This study surveyed 911 students in basic college foreign language programs to estimate their readiness for hybrid language instruction. The questions on the survey covered issues concerning students' ownership and accessibility of…

Thorne, Steven L.; Reinhardt, Jonathon – CALICO Journal, 2008
In this article we propose the pedagogical model "bridging activities" to address advanced foreign language proficiency in the context of existing and emerging internet communication and information tools and communities. The article begins by establishing the need for language and genre-focused activities at the advanced level that attend to the…
