Scholz, Kyle – CALICO Journal, 2017
Massively multiplayer online role-playing games like World of Warcraft are ideally suited to encourage and facilitate second language development (SLD) in the extramural setting, but to what extent do the language learners' actual trajectories of gameplay contribute to SLD? With the current propensity to focus research in digital game-based…

Sydorenko, Tetyana; Hsieh, Ching-Ni; Ahn, Seongmee; Arnold, Nike – CALICO Journal, 2017
A significant body of research has examined language learners' attitudes toward particular technologies used in foreign language classrooms. However, literature is scarce on foreign language learners' beliefs toward computer-assisted language learning (CALL) in general. To narrow this gap, we investigated the constructs that compose a system of…

Kusyk, Meryl – CALICO Journal, 2017
Research into the online informal learning of English (OILE) examines how nonnative speakers of English may develop L2 skills through participation in leisure activities on the Internet in the target language. Such activities include, e.g., watching television series, films, or videos, interacting on Facebook, reading articles, or listening to…

Yang, Se Jeong; Yi, Youngjoo – CALICO Journal, 2017
Much of eTandem research has investigated either linguistic or cross-cultural aspects of second language (L2) learning, but relatively little is known about issues of identity construction in an eTandem context. Situating the study within theories and research of language learner identity, we examined ways in which two adult L2 learners (a Korean…

Ortega, Lourdes – CALICO Journal, 2017
The majority of the world is multilingual, but inequitably multilingual, and much of the world is also technologized, but inequitably so. Thus, researchers in the fields of computer-assisted language learning (CALL) and second language acquisition (SLA) would profit from considering multilingualism and social justice when envisioning new CALL-SLA…

Hlas, Anne Cummings; Conroy, Kelly; Hildebrandt, Susan A. – CALICO Journal, 2017
The student teaching semester affords teacher candidates the chance to apply what they have learned during their teacher preparation coursework. Therefore, it can be a prime opportunity for student teachers to use technology for their own language learning and to implement computer assisted language learning (CALL) in their instruction. This study…

Li, Zhi; Feng, Hui-Hsien; Saricaoglu, Aysel – CALICO Journal, 2017
This classroom-based study employs a mixed-methods approach to exploring both short-term and long-term effects of Criterion feedback on ESL students' development of grammatical accuracy. The results of multilevel growth modeling indicate that Criterion feedback helps students in both intermediate-high and advanced-low levels reduce errors in eight…

Angus, Katie B. – CALICO Journal, 2017
The 2007 Modern Language Association (MLA) report recommended that foreign language (FL) graduate students be provided with "substantive training in language teaching and in the use of new technologies". In the present study, I examined teaching methodology ("methods") course syllabi in order to gauge the extent of professional…

O'Dowd, Robert – CALICO Journal, 2016
This article provides an overview of the most significant emerging trends and tendencies in telecollaborative practice. In order to achieve this, I review the recent literature in the area and I identify recurring themes from the Telecollaboration in Higher Education conference which took place in Trinity College Dublin, Ireland from 21 to 23…

Pereira, Lis; Manguilimotan, Erlyn; Matsumoto, Yuji – CALICO Journal, 2016
One of the challenges of learning Japanese as a Second Language (JSL) is finding the appropriate word for a particular usage. To address this challenge, we developed a collocational aid designed to suggest more appropriate collocations in Japanese. In particular, we address the problem of generating and ranking noun and verb candidates for…

Chukharev-Hudilainen, Evgeny; Klepikova, Tatiana A. – CALICO Journal, 2016
The purpose of the present paper is twofold; first, we present an empirical study evaluating the effectiveness of a novel CALL tool for foreign language vocabulary instruction based on spaced repetition of target vocabulary items. The study demonstrates that by spending an average of three minutes each day on automatically generated vocabulary…

Franciosi, Stephan J.; Yagi, Junichi; Tomoshige, Yuuki; Ye, Suying – CALICO Journal, 2016
Recent studies have shown that simulation games may be useful tools for supporting foreign language education. However, much of this research has focused on games using 3D graphic technology, which entail technical requirements that may render them too complex for use in many educational contexts. Accordingly, we wanted to determine if less…

Park, Ho-Ryong; Kim, Deoksoon – CALICO Journal, 2016
This study investigated four elementary-level English language learners' (ELLs') use of strategies for reading computer-based texts at home and in school. The ELLs in this study were in the fourth and fifth grades in a public elementary school. We identify the ELLs' strategies for reading computer-based texts in home and school environments. We…

Oskoz, Ana; Elola, Idoia – CALICO Journal, 2016
This article provides an overview of how digital stories (DSs)--storylines that integrate text, images, and sound--have been used in second-language (L2) contexts. The article first reviews the methodical and planned, albeit non-linear, steps required for successful implementation of DSs in the L2 classroom and then assesses the observed…

Scida, Emily E.; Jones, Jill N. – CALICO Journal, 2016
This study reports on the rehybridization of three beginning-level Spanish courses and the effect of the new redesigned courses on student learning and on self-reported levels of anxiety. The data collected included pretests and posttests of listening comprehension, linguistic knowledge, and foreign language anxiety, as well as qualitative data on…
