Bringing Foreign Language Learning into the 21st century
AbstractBringing Foreign Language Learning into the 21st Century. The different challenges facing foreign language lecturers are considered as well as the different methods used to teach a foreign language. Technology and multimedia are proposed not only as tools and supports but also as a possible solution. With the change in the student demographics, there is a need for engaged learners to take full responsibility for their language learning. There is also a need for lecturers who are not only language experts but who are also trained in the use of technology and who can facilitate foreign language learning.
Key words: foreign-language learning; technology and multimedia
