Wu, Shaoqun; Fitzgerald, Alannah; Yu, Alex; Witten, Ian – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Learning collocations is one of the most challenging aspects of language learning as there are literally hundreds of thousands of possibilities for combining words. Corpus consultation with concordancers has been recognized in the literature as an established way for language learners to study and explore collocations at their own pace and in…

Barth, Ingrid; Spector-Cohen, Elana; Sitman, Rosalie; Jiang, Guhuai; Liu, Fang; Xu, Yan – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Although open educational resources (OERs) can help bridge high school-university vocabulary gaps, central questions remain unanswered regarding effective design that enables students to go beyond the "small chunks" that typically characterize vocabulary learning in mobile learning environments (MLEs). This bi-national study adopted a…

Qin, Ying – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
This study extracts the comments from a large scale of Chinese EFL learners' translation corpus to study the taxonomy of translation errors. Two unsupervised machine learning approaches are used to obtain the computational evidences of translation error taxonomy. After manually revision, ten types of English to Chinese (E2C) and eight types…

Chen, Mei-Hua – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
It is not uncommon to see lists of semantically equivalent phrases in pedagogical materials. However, empirical investigations of the effect of synonymous phrase learning on vocabulary development are rarely attempted. The current study promotes computer-assisted synonymous phrase learning by introducing PREFER, a corpus-based paraphrasing system.…

Yang, Hao; Ma, Zhiqiang – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
While current research on the flipped classroom generally focuses on test results and (or) student/teacher perceptions as a measurement of its pedagogical efficacy, students' adaptation to it and the essential conditions for its application are rarely explored. This exploratory case study aims to rectify this by examining how university students…

Caruso, Marinella; Fraschini, Nicola; Kuuse, Sabine – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Feedback is one of the most important influences on second language learning. While much research has been undertaken in the field of corrective feedback, the study of student engagement with feedback in languages remains understudied. This article addresses the need for more interactive, effective and time-saving feedback, achieving more student…

Xu, Hongying – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
The flipped classroom model (FC), as a new instructional approach, has been implemented by different disciplines over the past few years. However, the use of this model is still in its infancy in the field of foreign language education. The present study explored the efficacy of using the FC model in facilitating the acquisition of grammar among…

Nadeem, Nahla Helmy – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Student engagement is a multidimensional construct that includes four distinct, though interrelated, aspects: behavioral, emotional, agentive, and cognitive engagement. The present study investigates students' perceptions about the impact of Padlet as a learning and assessment tool on the four aspects of class engagement. Padlet is a virtual wall…
