Reviews and Testimonials

Although International Journal of Computer Assisted Language Learning and Teaching is a new journal, it has made an increasing impact on many aspects of Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL). It publishes original and high quality articles that investigate real and emerging problems in language teaching and learning supported by cutting-edge educational technologies. It provides a lively forum for language professionals and ICT developers to share innovative teaching and learning approaches and strategies, to promote new understanding of language learning and learners in the 21st century, and to explore the future of CALL.

In an era of extensive application of the internet and computers, target language use situations have changed in fundamental ways. Computer-mediated communication has become a major characteristic of language activities. International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching (IJCALLT) has therefore provided a most necessary and timely opportunity for applied linguistic researchers around the world to publish their findings on how technology has affected the way language is learned and taught, and for practitioners in applied linguistics to gain information on the latest developments in computer-assisted language learning and teaching.

International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching (IJCALLT) is a fully referred international journal which is devoted to dissemination of information associated with the applications of computers and technology in language learning and teaching. Its editorial board consists of international scholars in the field of second language acquisition and computer-assisted language learning and teaching. The scope of the journal is wide-ranging and embraces a multitude of disciplines. It provides an interdisciplinary forum to discuss the theoretical debate, innovation and applications of integrating technology to support language learning and teaching.

– Professor Yu-Chih Sun and Professor Hsien-Chin Liu

International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching provides a well-balanced "mix" of empirical studies and reviews of new technologies currently being field-tested in language classrooms in many different countries. This emphasis on both theory and practice can help pre-service as well as in-service teachers gain a deeper understanding of which CALL solutions work and why. IJCALLT also gives CALL developers and researchers access to international "voices from the field" and enables them to focus on common issues that continue to challenge language learners and teachers throughout the world.
