“Calling on CALL is a valuable addition to any foreign language or second language instructor’s library, whether he/she already has an interest in CALL or not. … Seasoned instructors will be brought up to date on current theories, and new, or preservice, instructors will benefit from highlights of how theory can be applied in instruction. … The book encourages instructors … to consider the reality of technology in modern life and provides them with approaches to technology use that are solidly grounded in current pedagogy, practice, and research.”

Language Learning & Technology, 11 (1), 2007

“a welcome addition to the recent cluster of new publications in the field of computer-assisted language learning (CALL). … The stated aim [of the book] of ‘teacher-friendliness’ becomes evident in the clear emphasis on learning objectives, an emphasis which is used to structure the book and which provides a refreshing change from the more usual structure around application types in CALL.”
