Louisa Willoughby; Cathy Sell – Language Learning & Technology, 2024
Recent years have seen an explosion in video content available online. Yet there is relatively scant research on if, how, and why second language (L2) learners engage with videos in their target language as part of their self-directed study--especially for languages with a smaller media footprint. This paper presents qualitative findings from a…

Shen Qiao; Susanna Siu-Sze Yeung; Xiaoai Shen; Jac Ka Lok Leung; Davy Tsz Kit Ng; Samuel Kai Wah Chu – Language Learning & Technology, 2024
Gamification is an increasingly popular approach to engage learners in educational contexts. Although many studies have examined the effects of gamification in comparison to a non-gamification approach, less attention has been paid to the impact of different ways of implementing gamification on students' learning and engagement. In this study, we…

Mei-Rong Alice Chen; Yi-Hsuan Lin – Language Learning & Technology, 2024
One of the main goals of the English as a Foreign Language (EFL) course is to facilitate the development of learners' reading comprehension and reflective skills in English, which can be developed with appropriate instruction. However, in EFL courses, many students are inactive in reflecting on their reading and are disengaged from learning. To…

Eun Seon Chung – Language Learning & Technology, 2024
While previous investigations on online machine translation (MT) in language learning have analyzed how second language (L2) learners use and post-edit MT output, no study as of yet has investigated how the learners process MT errors and what factors affect this process using response and reading times. The present study thus investigates L2…

Paul Richards – Language Learning & Technology, 2024
This study experimentally investigated the effectiveness of feedback on learner refusals in a computer-simulated academic advising session. Ninety participants were assigned to one of three conditions: implicit feedback, explicit feedback, and comparison group. Oral and written discourse completion tasks (DCTs) were administered in a pretest…

Hsiu-Chen Hsu – Language Learning & Technology, 2024
This study examined the effects of pretask training to promote peer collaboration, encourage learning opportunities, and foster individual L2 writing development in web-based L2 collaborative writing (CW) tasks. The participants were 48 students from two junior English composition classes at a Taiwanese university. One class (n = 24) was assigned…

Heather Lotherington; Noah Bradley – Language Learning & Technology, 2024
This article presents a study on novel language forms and uses across evolving digital environments, and questions whether emerging digital communication conventions should have a place in language education. The study was motivated by the deepening gap between the content of and approaches to language instruction evident in popular…

Jining Han – Language Learning & Technology, 2024
The present study applied a multiple-case study design to investigate Chinese as a foreign language (CFL) students' responses to computer-mediated coded feedback and the factors that influence students' responses in an online multiple-draft Chinese writing context. Three intermediate-level students of Chinese completed four drafts for which they…

Suvorov, Ruslan; Gruba, Paul – Language Learning & Technology, 2023
Grounded in the three-tiered transdisciplinary SLA framework of the Douglas Fir Group (2016), we explore how the concept of 'semiotic resources' may be integrated into CALL activity designs. Starting at the macro level, we discuss how language ideology may influence where to situate semiotic resources within initial design considerations. We next…

Chen, Hsin-I; Sevilla-Pavón, Ana – Language Learning & Technology, 2023
This study examines how English-as-lingua-franca (ELF) learners employ semiotic resources, including head movements, gestures, facial expression, body posture, and spatial juxtaposition, to negotiate for meaning in an immersive virtual reality (VR) environment. Ten ELF learners participated in a TaiwanSpain VR virtual exchange project and…

Han, Yiting; Smith, Blaine E. – Language Learning & Technology, 2023
Internet memes--usually taking the form of an image, GIF, or video with text--have become an important type of semiotic tool for meaning making. Due to the fact that memes can help learners leverage semiotic modes in social contexts, they hold great potential for language education. Integrating ecological social semiotic frameworks, this…

Godwin-Jones, Robert – Language Learning & Technology, 2023
Looking at human communication from the perspective of semiotics extends our view beyond verbal language to consider other sign systems and meaning-making resources. Those include gestures, body language, images, and sounds. From this perspective, the communicative process expands from individual mental processes of verbalizing to include features…

Lee, Helen; Hampel, Regine – Language Learning & Technology, 2023
The theorization of how multimodal learning intersects with online teaching environments has emerged as a key research area in relationship to the creation of opportunities for L2 online interaction. However, there are few studies which have examined how cross-cultural dyads harness and orchestrate semiotic resources across mobile technologies…

Al Bukhari, Juman; Dewey, John A. – Language Learning & Technology, 2023
In second language acquisition, a popular method of introducing new vocabulary is by embedding the words in a natural text. Supplementary information (e.g., definitions, illustrations, synonyms, etc.), or glosses, can be included in the margins of the texts to highlight and improve retention of the new words. Previous studies suggest multimodal…

Abe, Makoto – Language Learning & Technology, 2023
How online interactants advance their talk in written interactions has been extensively investigated in different areas, including language learning. Applying a conversation analysis technique, this study examined how second language (L2) learners managed topics in L2 task-based text-chat interactions and the effects of L2 proficiency on their…
