Computers as a Language Learning Tool

  • Bernd Ruschoff


The subject of CALL has only recently been introduced to language teachers in
West Germany. While in other European countries many institutions are involved in
projects dealing with the use of computers in language learning. The Audio-Visual
Media Centre (AVMZ), Bergische Universitat-GH Wuppertal, 5600 Wuppertal 1, is
one of the few places in this country investigating various approaches to CALL.
This article describes the general concept of the project and the kind of programs
being developed and used. Furthermore, it is intended to solicit comments from
scholars and institutions in the USA and thus established contacts and initiate an
exchange of ideas.
