Abstract

Time pressure and lack of motivation are often seen as obstructive factors in second-language (L2) learning. In fact, L2 learning is much more of an ongoing process thanjust taking a course. In response, a new approach to learning has been developed,called integrated micro learning (IML), based on a patent-pending technology thatallows integrating language learning into a learner’s daily routine with the help ofelectronic devices. It thus helps to envisage a new mode of information technology-assisted L2 learning as part of vocational and educational training. In this chapter,we introduce the concept of IML in general and with regard to L2 learning in particular.We also report on the first prototypical representation as well as the first experience.1
