Bringing 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
