Advantages of CALL are identified, including the versatility of presentation of material, computer analysis of student performance, instant feedback, and the entertainment or novelty factor. Two sample programs for teaching English as a foreign language are also described: "Rambler" (or "Words Words Words") and "The University Survival Game."
