Abstract

Over the four weeks of this case study, 23-7th and 8th grade L2 Spanish language learners in a dual Spanish immersion setting used CALL (computer-assisted language learning) resources to study and demonstrate mastery of subject-verb agreement in past, present and future tenses in Spanish. The CALL resources which learners chose from included Quizlet (an online vocabulary building website), grammar screencasts, and GoogleDocs grammar presentations. The aim of this study was to understand how dual immersion L2 Spanish learners used CALL. Upon completion of the study, Quizlet was found to be the most used CALL resource and students identified it as being the most effective. The author calls for additional research in the area of CALL and dual immersion in order to define best practices.
