Abstract

Computers have become so widespread in schools and homes, and their uses have expanded so dramatically that most language teachers now are forced to think about the implications. Technology generates changes in foreign language teaching methodologies, far beyond the mechanical traditional exercises. The mere use of the computer is not a teaching method, but the computer forces pedagogy to think of new ways to exploit technology benefits and work around inherent limitations. In order to do so, language teaching specialists are needed for promoting a complementary relationship between computer technology and appropriate pedagogic programs. It takes time and effort to implement it, but modernization and effectiveness have never been easy tasks.
