Son, Jeong-Bae (2018) Technology in English as a foreign language (EFL) teaching. In: The TESOL encyclopedia of English language teaching. John Wiley & Sons, Inc., United States, pp. 1-6. ISBN 9781118784228

Abstract

Technology is widely used in the context of teaching English as a foreign language (EFL), which usually refers to teaching English to non-native speakers of English in regions where English is not commonly spoken. This paper briefly explores the use of computer technologies in teaching EFL with a quick overview of the development of computer-assisted language learning (CALL) and a focus on three research areas: computer-mediated communication (CMC), web-based language learning (WBLL), and mobile-assisted language learning (MALL). It also discusses online tools for language teaching and considers implications for EFL teaching with digital technologies.
