Developing a CALL Program on WWW.
Lai, Fung-kuen Eva
The process of developing, pilot testing, and revising a set of English-as-a-Second-Language instructional materials for computer-assisted language learning (CALL) is described. The materials are designed to prepare students for job interviews in the Hong Kong (China) employment market, which differs in some significant ways from other environments. Ideas for questions were drawn from real job interviews at large companies in Hong Kong, job advertisements, and application letters. Ten questions were identified for use in the interview package, and six dialogues were written so students can select from a variety of interview contexts. After going through an interview, students can click on different exchanges to examine what has taken place, evaluate the answers given, read comments, and participate in a cloze exercise. Student feedback on the interviews is invited. Experience suggests that students have found the package useful for building interview skills, oral skills, and confidence. Some student requested interviews more closely related to their own academic majors. Screens from one of the interviews are appended. (MSE)
