Divided into four areas—"Review Articles," "Qualitative Researcher," "Mixed Methods Research," and "Quantitative Research"—the 20 essays [within this title] focus mostly on EFL in various countries (Iran, Turkey, Malaysia, India, Brazil). Topics include integration of CALL in teacher-training programs, individual learners’ profiles in online learning, writing in the blogosphere, corpora and cognitive styles, writing/tutoring peer feedback online, wikis, anxiety with reading online, to name just a few. Also considered are factors affecting language learning through technology, such as culture, native language, gender, personality, and learning styles. Summing Up: Recommended.
