Computer Assisted Language Learning:. Edition No. 1
VDM Publishing House, June 2009, Pages: 136
The importance of properly integrating CALL into EFL
programs and monitoring its effects on teaching and
learning has been noted by numerous researchers.
However, an exhaustive search for studies on the
effects of CALL implementation in the Middle East
produced only a handful of reports on the use of
computers by Saudi university faculty members--none
directly concerned with the use of CALL in EFL
instruction. This book describes the current state
of Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) in the
English as a Foreign Language (EFL) departments of
four government-funded universities in Saudi Arabia.
The information in this book should help university
administrators in their attempts to make
improvements in this area. Suggestions and
recommendations are also offered for encouraging the
use of CALL in these programs.

of computer in teaching Arabic as a second language.
