Title : Changes in foreign language learning with CALL: a case study in Vietnam
Type : Paper (25 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

It is obvious nowadays that computers still cannot replace human being. Nevertheless, in language teaching and learning, the utility of CALL is becoming indispensable for both teachers and learners.  It is well-documented in the literature that there is no best teaching method for every culture of learning and teaching context. However, in each concrete teaching context, some methods are evidently more appropriate than others. The purpose of this research is to find out whether it is true that blended learning can bring about students’ not only new knowledge but also a change in their skills and attitude.  The author of the paper conducted an experimental study on this by randomly selecting 169 participants to take part in the research. Each of them was provided with an account a Moodle platform to access blended courses of English integrated reading skills. Before the courses the participants were trained in handling Moodle platform and other online activities in combination with F2F learning. After they finished their courses, a survey was conducted in searching for the participants’ comparison of their experience of blended learning to traditional face to face methods. Then the data were analyzed with SPSS software.  The findings of the research show that foreign language learners who are exposed to a blended learning environment derive more benefits in term of skills improvement and positive change in attitude towards their learning.
