English Language Teaching, v6 n8 p66-76 2013
One of the critical issues pertaining learning English as second language successfully is pronunciation, which consequently contributes to learners' poor communicative power. This situation is moreover crucial among non-native speakers. Therefore, various initiatives have been taken in order to promote effective language learning, which includes 3D talking-head on mobile technology. 3D talking-head appeared to be a sufficient instructional material in supporting language learning, mostly in pronunciation aspects among non-native speakers. On this regard, this paper proposed a conceptual framework for 3D talking-head Mobile Assisted Language Learning (MALL), specifically for pronunciation learning. The framework was developed based on theories, principles and literature overview done. The paper also suggests potential studies to further affirm the framework developed.
