There are a large number of online tools that can be used for second/foreign language learning and teaching. The increasing awareness of the tools generates a need for computer-assisted language learning (CALL) researchers and practitioners to develop and implement CALL widely by exploring, selecting, using and evaluating the tools in a variety of contexts. In this paper, I discuss the place and role of online language teaching tools in CALL and present a categorised list of the tools, which provides a basis for further research and practice in CALL.
