Details One major advantage of multimedia-enhanced CALL materials is that they allow students to carry out their language studies at their own pace. Another important benefit of the use of CALL materials is that they enable students to acquire a wide variety of information in many different ways. We tried to design materials that enable integrated understanding of English sentences, both visually and aurally. Specifically, the materials provided learners with opportunities to listen to spoken dialogues while watching video texts of recorded conversations.
