Acronym: CALL


CALL - Computer Assisted Language Learning: The term CALL refers to language instruction that is aided through the use of technology. When used loosely, it means any language learning activity done on a computer. In this sense, student e-mail exchange in English would be a CALL activity. When the term is used more specifically, it refers more to using technology to provide more individualized practice on specific language points.
