Prof. Dorothy Chun: What's hot and what's to come in CALL

Based on my role as Editor in Chief of the journal Language Learning & Technology since 2000 and on my experiences as a computer-assisted language learning (CALL) researcher, developer and teacher, I will provide an overview of recent cutting edge research on the uses of technologies for second language teaching and learning. I suggest that the “L” in CALL should represent “languaculture” rather than just “language,” as the field of second language education is increasingly placing greater emphasis on the inextricable link between language and culture. I will also look to the future and suggest promising trajectories for CALL development and research.
