Computer-Assisted Language Learning, Mobile learning, Personal learning environments, Methodology


There is no doubt that Computer-Assisted Language Learning has undergone profound changes since its emergence last century and has accelerated its development in line with technological advances in recent years. Such has been the transformation that some authors have announced its disappearance as field for discussion. This article gives a brief overview of its evolution and examines the relationship between technology and foreign language teaching methodology. It also investigates the current trends –mobile learning and personal learning environments applied to language learning- and reflects on possible lines of development in the near future.
