Computers in Applied Linguistics and Language Teaching

A call Handbook

Udo O.H. Jung

A great many of the papers in this volume were first read at the Annual Meeting of the German Association of Applied Linguistics (GAL) which took place at Heidelberg University from 1 - 3 October 1987. Dr. Jung - he is Head of the Educational Technology Section of GAL and Convenor of CETaLL, AILA's Scientific Commission on Educational Technology and Language Learning - took the opportunity to enlarge this basic stock by inviting internationally recognized scholars to contribute articles on topics which were not or only sparingly represented at the GAL meeting. With reports on the situation of CALL in more than 10 countries around the world, a comprehensive glossary of terms and articles on hard- and software in both research and practice the result comes very close to a CALL Handbook.
