For teachers of English, connecting with non-native students can pose significant problems, but communication technologies may offer a viable solution.
Cases on Communication Technology for Second Language Acquisition and Cultural Learning provides educators with valuable insight into methods and opportunities for using technology to teach students learning a foreign language. Theoretical and pragmatic cases illustrate teaching strategies and methodologies, hardware and software development, administrative concerns, and cross-cultural considerations with respect to effective educational technologies. Educators and students, as well as administrators and developers, will use this book to improve the effectiveness of second language curricula across a variety of intercultural perspectives.

Reviews and Testimonials
Scholars of communication and language instruction use a case study approach to merge ideas from the two fields by examining diverse perspectives of teaching communication, language, and culture. Short introductory articles offer ideas for teaching, and case studies cover teaching, using technology, and learning language and culture. The topics include using mobile applications in public speaking instruction, the use and acceptance of technology by pre-service teachers of English as a foreign language, producing pathways to proficient pronunciation with learner-designed pronunciation stations, laying the ground for online English as a second or foreign language, composition courses and university internationalization, and integrating Chinese community into Canadian society.
