CALL and the Saudi Arabian EFL Learners: An Action Research
Alfallaj, Fahad Saleh Suleiman
Advances in Language and Literary Studies, v8 n2 p122-129 Apr 2017
There is a growing consciousness to the need to know English among the Saudi Arabian peoples. This is apparent in the painstaking efforts of the policy makers in bringing in technology as an aid to teachers, institutions diverting huge funding to the field and encouraging research in the area. Learning outcomes, however, do not reflect these efforts. This study is an effort to zero in on factors that are impeding the expected proficiency of the Saudi EFL learner with special reference to the use of CALL. Having done this, the study makes pertinent recommendations with the larger aim of bringing the EFL learners to level playing ground in the global language scene. It is an Action Research carried out in the course of the researcher's teaching tenure at Qassim University in KSA.
