Sundqvist, Pia – Language Learning & Technology, 2019
The purposes of this study are to examine the relation between playing commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) games in the wild and L2 English vocabulary and to offer comparisons with non-gamers' vocabulary. Data were collected from two samples of teenage L2 English learners in Sweden, Sample A (N = 1,069) and Sample B (N = 16). Questionnaires and…

Jensen, Signe Hannibal – Language Learning & Technology, 2019
Through the analytical lens of activity theory (Leontiev, 1978, Lantolf & Thorne, 2006), the present study investigates the uptake of affordances for language learning by young (ages 7-11) Danish children (N = 15) in their engagement with English language media in the digital wild. Drawing on ethnographic interviews (Spradley, 1979), during…

Kent, David – Language Learning & Technology, 2019
Although studies using student response systems (SRSs) within the English as a foreign language (EFL) classroom are relatively rare, there is increasing evidence from a range of disciplines to highlight the potential behind application of these systems for student learning. Consequently, this study contributes to filling this gap by demonstrating…

Vazquez-Calvo, Boris; Zhang, Leticia Tian; Pascual, Mariona; Cassany, Daniel – Language Learning & Technology, 2019
Fan practices involving translation open up opportunities to explore language learning practices within the fandom (Sauro, 2017). We examine how three fans capitalize on fan translation and language learning. We consider the cases of Selo (an English-Spanish translator of games), Nino (a Japanese-Catalan fansubber of anime, and Alro (an…

Ramezanali, Nasrin; Faez, Farahnaz – Language Learning & Technology, 2019
Drawing on Mayer's (2014) cognitive theory of multimedia learning, the purpose of this study was to examine which modes of gloss presentation (i.e., L2 definition, aural, and video animation) are effective for learners' vocabulary learning and delayed word recollection. One control group and three experimental groups were formed by 132…

Gao, Jianwu; Ma, Shuang – Language Learning & Technology, 2019
This study investigated whether the effect of two forms of computer-automated metalinguistic corrective feedback in drills transferred to subsequent writing tasks. The English simple past tense, a learned structure, was selected as the target structure. Participants included 117 intermediate learners of English as a foreign language assigned to…

Ranalli, Jim; Feng, Hui-Hsien; Chukharev-Hudilainen, Evgeny – Language Learning & Technology, 2019
The research literature on L2 writing processes contains a multitude of insights that could inform writing instruction, but writing teachers are constrained in their capacity to make use of these insights insofar as they lack detailed information about how their students actually engage in the processes of writing. At the same time,…

Li, Jia; Cummins, Jim – Language Learning & Technology, 2019
This article reports on a study that examined the effectiveness of an intervention using text messages to enhance the academic vocabulary acquisition of English language learners (ELLs). With a random control trial design, we compared students' learning gain of target vocabulary (direct effect) and its subsequent impact on academic vocabulary…

Gass, Susan; Winke, Paula; Isbell, Daniel R.; Ahn, Jieun – Language Learning & Technology, 2019
Captions provide a useful aid to language learners for comprehending videos and learning new vocabulary, aligning with theories of multimedia learning. Multimedia learning predicts that a learner's working memory (WM) influences the usefulness of captions. In this study, we present two eye-tracking experiments investigating the role of WM in…

Lee, Ju Seong – Language Learning & Technology, 2019
While research on informal digital learning of English (IDLE) increases in the fields of teaching English to speakers of other languages and computer-assisted language learning, few studies have examined the relationship between quantity and diversity of IDLE practices and different language learning outcomes. To address this gap, data were…

Godwin-Jones, Robert – Language Learning & Technology, 2019
In the 20th anniversary issue of this journal, Reinders and White (2016) describe the relationship between computer-assisted language learning (CALL) and autonomy as having become "both more complex and more promising" (p. 143). This is, they assert, in large part due to the rise of informal language learning online, with an accompanying…
