TESOL CALL Interest Section Software List, 1999.
Healey, Deborah, Ed.; Johnson, Norman, Ed.
The bibliography is an annotated list of software for language learning and includes items in use by TESOL teachers and those marketed for bilingual and English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) education. An introductory section describes the listings and their use, gives a brief history of the software list, a brief introduction to computer-assisted language learning (CALL) and its techniques, a short list of CALL resources in print, and related on-line reviews and World Wide Web resources. The listing itself is divided into four main sections: software designed for Mackintosh computers, software designed for Windows/MS-DOS machines, a separate list of materials appropriate for elementary school use, and a list of CD-ROM materials developed by TESOL. Lists of publishers and contacts are also included, and contents are indexed by subject or type (bilingual, business, CD-ROM, literacy, science, Test of English as a Foreign Language) and alphabetically.
