Luo, Beate – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2020
This study explored students' learning behavior before and after participating in an introduction to learning how to learn. This four-week intervention included the Massive Open Online Course "Learning How to Learn," further discussions on the content of this MOOC, and hands-on practice using learning platforms. Its purpose was to…

Chen, Chih-Ming; Chen, Liang-Chun; Yang, Shun-Min – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2019
In recent years, numerous English vocabulary learning-assisted apps have been developed to enlarge learners' English vocabulary through mobile learning. However, the ability of learners to engage in self-regulated learning (SRL) importantly affects performance in autonomously learning English vocabulary using mobile apps. Therefore, this study…

Gelan, Anouk; Fastré, Greet; Verjans, Martine; Martin, Niels; Janssenswillen, Gert; Creemers, Mathijs; Lieben, Jonas; Depaire, Benoît; Thomas, Michael – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Learning analytics (LA) has emerged as a field that offers promising new ways to prevent drop-out and aid retention. However, other research suggests that large datasets of learner activity can be used to understand online learning behaviour and improve pedagogy. While the use of LA in language learning has received little attention to date,…

Rachels, Jason R.; Rockinson-Szapkiw, Amanda J. – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
A quasi-experimental, pretest-posttest, non-equivalent control group design was used to examine the effect of a mobile gamification application on third and fourth grade students' Spanish language achievement and student academic self-efficacy. In this study, the treatment group's Spanish language instruction was through the use of…

Sydorenko, Tetyana; Daurio, Phoebe; Thorne, Steven L. – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
To address the problem of limited opportunities for practicing second language speaking in interaction, especially delicate interactions requiring pragmatic competence, we describe computer simulations designed for the oral practice of extended pragmatic routines and report on the affordances of such simulations for learning pragmatically…

Bodnar, Stephen; Cucchiarini, Catia; Penning de Vries, Bart; Strik, Helmer; van Hout, Roeland – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2017
Although corrective feedback (CF) has received much interest in the second language acquisition literature, relatively little research has investigated the relationship between CF and learner affect in concrete practice situations. The present study investigates learners' affective states and practice behaviour in a novel context: oral grammar…

Matthews, Joshua; O'Toole, John Mitchell; Chen, Shen – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2017
This paper reports on task interaction, task success and word learning among second language (L2) learners of different levels of word recognition from speech (WRS) proficiency who used a CALL application previously shown to be effective in the development of L2 WRS. Participants (N = 65) were categorised into three levels of L2 WRS proficiency…

Rassaei, Ehsan – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2017
This study investigated the effects of two modes of corrective feedback, namely, face-to-face recasts and computer-mediated recasts during video-conferencing on Iranian English as a foreign language (EFL) learners' second language (L2) development. Moreover, the accuracy of the learners' interpretations of recasts in the two modalities was…

Boers, Frank; Warren, Paul; Grimshaw, Gina; Siyanova-Chanturia, Anna – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2017
Several research articles published in the realm of Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) have reported evidence of the benefits of multimodal annotations, i.e. the provision of pictorial as well as verbal clarifications, for vocabulary uptake from reading. Almost invariably, these publications account for the observed benefits with reference…

Jiang, Dayu; Renandya, Willy A.; Zhang, Lawrence Jun – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2017
Using the cognitive theory of multimedia learning, this study aimed to evaluate the design of one multimedia courseware used for teaching English as a foreign language (EFL) in China and to compare the attitudinal differences in the teachers' and students' evaluation of the courseware. A questionnaire was developed and validated. Results indicated…

Chen, Tsuiping – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2016
Some studies on technology-supported peer feedback in the writing classroom claim that it reduces the threatening atmosphere caused by face-to-face interaction and that the discourse patterns and language use in the electronic feedback are more flexible than in spoken discourse. Others present a negative view that the comments generated from…

Stengers, Hélène; Deconinck, Julie; Boers, Frank; Eyckmans, June – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2016
This paper reports an experiment designed to evaluate an attempt to improve the effectiveness of an existing L2 idiom-learning tool. In this tool, learners are helped to associate the abstract, idiomatic meaning of expressions such as "jump the gun" (act too soon) with their original, concrete meaning (e.g. associating "jump the…

Choi, Inn-Chull – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2016
A Web-based form-focused intelligent computer-assisted language learning (ICALL) tutoring system equipped with a process-oriented corrective feedback function was developed to investigate the extent to which such a program may serve as a viable method of teaching grammar to Korean secondary and elementary students. The present study was also…

Chen, I-Jung – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2016
This study compared how three different gloss modes affected college students' L2 reading comprehension and vocabulary acquisition. The study also compared how results on comprehension and vocabulary acquisition may differ depending on the four assessment methods used. A between-subjects design was employed with three groups of Mandarin-speaking…

Luo, Beate – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2016
This study investigates a computer-assisted pronunciation training (CAPT) technique that combines oral reading with peer review to improve pronunciation of Taiwanese English major students. In addition to traditional in-class instruction, students were given a short passage every week along with a recording of the respective text, read by a native…
