Wang, Fan; Hwang, Wu-Yuin; Li, Yung-Hui; Chen, Pin-Tse; Manabe, Kinnosuke – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2019
This study aims to integrate kinesthetic technology and collaborative learning into total physical response (TPR) and to investigate the effect of collaborative total physical response (CTPR) on English language acquisition by high school students. To accomplish this, we utilized Microsoft Kinects to develop Collaborative Kinesthetic English…

Tsai, Pi-hua – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2019
In foreign language education, instruction in pronunciation has received less attention than instruction in other language skills. Many teachers do not know how to teach correct pronunciation due to lack of knowledge in pronunciation pedagogy even if they want to or they assume that students pick it up on their own. With the development of…

Rienties, Bart; Lewis, Tim; McFarlane, Ruth; Nguyen, Quan; Toetenel, Lisette – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Language education has a rich history of research and scholarship focusing on the effectiveness of learning activities and the impact these have on student behaviour and outcomes. One of the basic assumptions in foreign language pedagogy and CALL in particular is that learners want to be able to communicate effectively with native speakers of…

Yeldham, Michael – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Captioning is commonly used to scaffold video viewing for second language learners, with the captioning affording the learners access to authentic videos that would ordinarily be out of their reach. Ostensibly the videos are mainly shown to help improve the learners' listening abilities. However, there is the view that the learners largely tend to…

Sharifi, Maryam; Rostami AbuSaeedi, AliAsghar; Jafarigohar, Manoochehr; Zandi, Bahman – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
The effectiveness of computer-assisted instruction in language learning has been the topic of a long-standing debate. Prompted by this debate, we attempted to provide an updated meta-analysis on the learning effect of computer-assisted English language instruction on a broad range of study features. This meta-analysis of the experimental…

Ranalli, Jim – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Automated written corrective feedback (AWCF) has qualities that distinguish it from teacher-provided WCF and potentially undermine claims about its value for L2 student writers, including disparities in the amounts of useful information it provides across error types and the fact that inaccuracies in error-flagging must be anticipated. It remains…

Liakin, Denis; Cardoso, Walcir; Liakina, Natallia – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2017
We examine the impact of the pedagogical use of mobile TTS on the L2 acquisition of French liaison, a process by which a word-final consonant is pronounced at the beginning of the following word if the latter is vowel-initial (e.g. peti/t.a/mi = > peti[ta]mi "boyfriend"). The study compares three groups of L2 French students learning…

Sun, Zhong; Lin, Chin-Hsi; You, Jiaxin; Shen, Hai jiao; Qi, Song; Luo, Liming – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2017
Most students of English as a foreign language (EFL) lack sufficient opportunities to practice their English-speaking skills. However, the recent development of social-networking sites (SNSs) and mobile learning, and especially mobile-assisted language learning, represents new opportunities for these learners to practice speaking English in a…

Rassaei, Ehsan – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2017
This study investigated the effects of two modes of corrective feedback, namely, face-to-face recasts and computer-mediated recasts during video-conferencing on Iranian English as a foreign language (EFL) learners' second language (L2) development. Moreover, the accuracy of the learners' interpretations of recasts in the two modalities was…

Ahmadi, Alireza; Sahragard, Rahman; Babaie Shalmani, Hamed – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2017
The present study aimed to examine whether agent-based instruction would privilege English as a Foreign Language (EFL) learners any better than mainstream approaches (e.g. analogical reasoning, guessing from context, image formation, semantic analysis, etc.) when it comes to the teaching of English idioms. It also sought to explore whether…

Li, Jia; Cummins, Jim; Deng, Qizhen – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2017
This study examined university undergraduate English language learners' (ELLs) perspectives on an intervention, Word Matters, that aimed to enhance functional academic vocabulary learning critical to their cognitive academic language proficiency development (Cummins, 1989), a challenge faced by many ELLs in English-medium universities. This…

Bodnar, Stephen; Cucchiarini, Catia; Strik, Helmer; van Hout, Roeland – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2016
A major aim of computer-assisted language learning (CALL) is to create computer environments that facilitate students' second language (L2) acquisition. To achieve this aim, CALL employs technological innovations to create novel types of language practice. Evaluations of the new practice types serve the important role of distinguishing effective…
