Propose a chapter for this book:


The book entitled “New technological applications for foreign and second language learning and teaching” will offer a wide-ranging exploration of the latest advances in technology-enhanced language learning. This publication combines theoretical and applied research from an interdisciplinary viewpoint. The volume will encompass contributions from international experts in the field who possess extensive experience in the use of the latest technologies to enhance the process of foreign/second language learning. The book differs from earlier publications in that it will offer insights into state-of-the-art technological and methodological innovations and also new practical applications. Topics examined will include outcomes of the use of contemporary digital technologies for learners and teachers, as well as the application of recent technological developments to language learning and teaching. Further areas of investigation include the description and discussion of practical exemplars of the above phenomena in a range of language learning settings. Drawing together theoretical and empirical studies relating to language learning, the book will represent an essential resource for academics, researchers, practitioners and postgraduate students in the areas of computer assisted language learning, languages, linguistics and language teaching.


This book will explore how the latest technologies have the potential to engage foreign/second language learners both within and outside the language classroom and to facilitate language learning and teaching in the target language by means of them. This book will be geared toward language professionals, researchers and practitioners who wish to advance their understanding of how new technologies may be effectively applied in foreign and second language teaching and learning. Moreover, this book will appeal to those who wish to enhance language education by means of current technologies.


Because of the scope, the diversity of topics covered and the adoption of various theoretical perspectives, the book will be of interest not only to theorists and researchers but also to methodologists, practitioners and materials-developers and can be used in courses for undergraduate and graduate students.


Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • teaching and learning language systems and subsystems (e.g., speaking, vocabulary, pronunciation)
  • communication/interaction in the target language
  • learning analytics
  • immersive VR
  • learning in non-institutional environments
  • individual differences
  • affective variables (e.g., motivation, anxiety, willingness to communicate)
  • identity and CALL
  • individual variation in digital environments
  • learners with special educational needs and CALL
  • learner and teacher characteristics
  • testing/evaluation/assessment in CALL
  • learner autonomy and CALL
  • courseware design development
  • online learning and teaching
  • telecollaboration
  • digital games
  • virtual worlds
  • distance CALL
  • intelligent CALL
  • materials design
  • methodology of research
