Deploying Computer Assisted Language Learning (Call) Programmes in the Teaching of Use of English at the Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO) (Published)
This paper examined the state-of-affairs in the deployment of Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) programmes in the teaching of Use of English at the Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO). This is in consideration of the potentials of using computer programmes in bridging the gap in language teaching and learning here, such as access to reliable models, authentic materials, overcoming the effect of a large class size, task-based approach to language teaching, proper motivation of learners, among other things. The study noted the limited computer knowledge on the part of teachers and students and, to some extent, limited access to the Internet and computers. The study also looked at some computer applications that could be useful in teaching some topics in Use of English in the University.
