Intelligent CALL: The magnitude of the task


The quality of most CALL programs is not well balanced with respect to the use of computer technology and of language content and processing. This imbalance can be explained by a number of constraints pulling CALL developers in diverging directions. For commercial CALLware the poor learner fit and lack of feedback is a serious impediment. So far ICALL approaches trying to overcome this have not been of a sufficiently high quality due to the vast distance between most learner language and the text genres NLP is helpful for. The way forward suggested here is for ICALL to take a localized, (bilingual) lexicon-centred approach that combines sophisticated resources with improved learner fit for more creative and interactive CALLware.
