Ranalli, Jim; Yamashita, Taichi – Language Learning & Technology, 2022
To the extent automated written corrective feedback (AWCF) tools such as Grammarly are based on sophisticated error-correction technologies, such as machine-learning techniques, they have the potential to find and correct more common L2 error types than simpler spelling and grammar checkers such as the one included in Microsoft Word (technically…

Kourtali, Nektaria-Efstathia – Language Learning & Technology, 2022
The role of recasts, a corrective feedback technique, has received much attention from instructed SLA researchers. While a variety of factors have been identified as influencing their effectiveness in facilitating uptake and L2 development (e.g., learners' age and level of proficiency), the role of mode of interaction has been the object of…

van Lieshout, Catharina; Cardoso, Walcir – Language Learning & Technology, 2022
This study examined the pedagogical use of Google Translate (GT) and its associated text-to-speech synthesis (TTS) and automatic speech recognition (ASR) as tools to assist in the learning of second/foreign language Dutch vocabulary and pronunciation in an autonomous, self-directed learning setting. Thirty participants used GT (its translation,…

Dixon, Daniel H.; Dixon, Tulay; Jordan, Eric – Language Learning & Technology, 2022
Studies on digital game-based language learning (DGBLL) have increased in numbers, creating a pool of studies that can be meta-analyzed to measure the overall effect of digital gaming on second language (L2) development. The current meta-analysis targets digital games that were available to the public at the time of data collection, January of…

Shafiee, Zahra; Marandi, S. Susan; Mirzaeian, Vahid Reza – Language Learning & Technology, 2022
Despite the surge of interest in language teachers' professional identity (TPI) as an integral component of their professional growth (Barkhuizen, 2017; Clarke, 2018) and the increasing interest in the field of computer assisted language learning (CALL) (Nami et al., 2015), there is still a paucity of research on the professional identity of…

Lyu, Boning; Lai, Chun – Language Learning & Technology, 2022
Language learners are actively engaging in language learning beyond the classroom. However, social networking sites, despite playing a major role in people's lives, have been found to be rarely incorporated into language learners' learning ecologies. An understanding of the factors that shape learners' engagement on instruction-oriented social…

Liu, Sha; Yu, Guoxing – Language Learning & Technology, 2022
This study used eye-tracking, in combination with stimulated recalls and reflective journals, to investigate L2 learners' engagement with automated feedback and the impact of feedback explicitness and accuracy on their engagement. Twenty-four Chinese EFL learners revised their writing through Write & Improve with Cambridge, a new automated…

Feng, Hui-Hsien; Chukharev-Hudilainen, Evgeny – Language Learning & Technology, 2022
Automated writing evaluation (AWE) systems have been introduced to ESL/EFL classes in the hopes of reducing teachers' workloads and improving students' writing by providing instant holistic scores and corrective feedback (Jiang & Yu, 2020; Link et al., 2014; Ranalli & Yamashita, 2019; Warschauer & Ware, 2006). When it comes to…

Green, Clarence – Language Learning & Technology, 2022
This paper computes estimates of the potential for Extensive Reading (ER) and Extensive Viewing (EV) to support the academic and discipline-specific vocabulary needs of students. While research into ER/EV for general vocabulary is well-established, only recently has academic vocabulary begun to be researched. Given curriculum time constraints,…

Lam, Yau Wai; Hew, Khe Foon; Jia, Chengyuan – Language Learning & Technology, 2022
Many English-as-Second-Language (ESL) learners find it highly challenging to write problem-solution essays. This difficulty is partly caused by the pedagogies commonly used in traditional classroom settings, which have two major in-vivo constraints: time limits and low student engagement. This study proposes an innovative theory-driven…

Zhang, Hong; Torres-Hostench, Olga – Language Learning & Technology, 2022
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of Machine Translation Post-Editing (MTPE) training for FL students. Our hypothesis was that with specific MTPE training, students will able to detect and correct machine translation mistakes in their FL. Training materials were developed to detect six typical mistakes from Machine…

Daly, Nigel P. – Language Learning & Technology, 2022
The road to second language competence is a long and arduous one, and much of its effort involves learning to recognize and use vocabulary. Fortunately, anytime-anywhere learning with smart phones and smart apps offer a means to lessen the burden and make vocabulary learning more efficient. Accordingly, this study investigated 134 students across…
