Wu, Shaoqun; Fitzgerald, Alannah; Yu, Alex; Witten, Ian – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Learning collocations is one of the most challenging aspects of language learning as there are literally hundreds of thousands of possibilities for combining words. Corpus consultation with concordancers has been recognized in the literature as an established way for language learners to study and explore collocations at their own pace and in…

Barth, Ingrid; Spector-Cohen, Elana; Sitman, Rosalie; Jiang, Guhuai; Liu, Fang; Xu, Yan – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Although open educational resources (OERs) can help bridge high school-university vocabulary gaps, central questions remain unanswered regarding effective design that enables students to go beyond the "small chunks" that typically characterize vocabulary learning in mobile learning environments (MLEs). This bi-national study adopted a…

Jeaco, Stephen – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
One of the greatest impacts of corpus linguistics on language teaching has been in the recognition of the importance of collocation. A very influential guide for language teachers with regard to teaching collocation has been the Lexical Approach. Activities pointing students to rich collocational information in monolingual dictionaries, in texts…

Qin, Ying – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
This study extracts the comments from a large scale of Chinese EFL learners' translation corpus to study the taxonomy of translation errors. Two unsupervised machine learning approaches are used to obtain the computational evidences of translation error taxonomy. After manually revision, ten types of English to Chinese (E2C) and eight types…

Stickler, Ursula; Hampel, Regine – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
This article explores the theoretical foundations of qualitative research in online language learning. It will look at the distinction between offline and online language learning and discuss whether different ways of knowledge generation are appropriate for those different learning environments. Quantitative and qualitative methodologies will be…

Chen, Mei-Hua – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
It is not uncommon to see lists of semantically equivalent phrases in pedagogical materials. However, empirical investigations of the effect of synonymous phrase learning on vocabulary development are rarely attempted. The current study promotes computer-assisted synonymous phrase learning by introducing PREFER, a corpus-based paraphrasing system.…

Çiftçi, Hatime; Aslan, Erhan – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
As current computer-mediated communication (CMC) research is omnipresent in the foreign/second language (L2) writing process, a synthesis of the research in this realm is needed to better understand and inform the current pedagogical practices with technology in language classrooms. This article presents a review of 38 studies identifying the…

Shrestha, Sagun; Harrison, Tilly – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Machinima, screencast animated videos made in a virtual world, are still not a very well-known phenomenon, and there has been little reseach in relation to their use as a teaching material in English language classrooms. This study aimed to investigate the potential for and challenges in using machinima in the pre-intermediate English as a foreign…

Yang, Hao; Ma, Zhiqiang – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
While current research on the flipped classroom generally focuses on test results and (or) student/teacher perceptions as a measurement of its pedagogical efficacy, students' adaptation to it and the essential conditions for its application are rarely explored. This exploratory case study aims to rectify this by examining how university students…

Caruso, Marinella; Fraschini, Nicola; Kuuse, Sabine – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Feedback is one of the most important influences on second language learning. While much research has been undertaken in the field of corrective feedback, the study of student engagement with feedback in languages remains understudied. This article addresses the need for more interactive, effective and time-saving feedback, achieving more student…

Kim, Byoung Gwan; Shim, Hye Rin – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
This study investigated the optimal conditions under which foreign language learning takes place using a smartphone. The authors proposed that two factors, chunking and imagery, would increase language learning. On the basis of previous findings, they formulated three hypotheses: (a) the use of images will have a positive effect on learning…
