Abstract- Computers are now able to play natural human speech together with full-screen interactive video, just an impossibility a few years ago. Interactive communication among users is not science-fiction any more and chats provide straightforward opportunities for authentic language use among native and non-native speakers on an unprecedented scale. The sudden proliferation of CD-ROMs offering language instruction is no surprise either. Finally, the development of the Web 2.0 (with blogs as a state-of-the-art and increasingly refined way of linguistic interaction) has added to CALL a gigantic feedback boost in the last few years. This book supports a student-centred approach. Notwithstanding, this proposal does not leave aside the relevance of the teacher's role when directing student's efforts through the complex world of CALL resources. Thus it reflects how CALL has contributed to accelerate the process of role-changing in the student-teacher relationship in language learning. As Lamm & Lawrence (2002: 297) point out: The structure of the book is based on the well-known taxonomy of basic skills in any language learning-teaching process, particularly focusing on English as second or foreign language. Its usefulness is immediately assumed by the reader interested in CALL (Ref . CALL. Practical Approaches to Computer-Assisted Language Learning by Carol A. Chapelle and Joan Jamieson, Pearson Longman, New York, 2008).
