I remembered that I had some troubles about the CALL course, as I didn’t know how to use internet applications. When the teacher gave us the syllabus, I had negative attitude towards to the course. The teacher told about what we would do during the term and I said that if only I had taken this course last year, but my feelings and thoughts are totally changed. I learned a lot of tools that I will use for my education in the future. After this course, I dealt with computer more and I research tools, programs implementing the tasks. I think that the CALL is an informative course for the teachers. These programs give us a chance to use in the course for enjoyment. If we use these tools, different activities draw the students’ attention.
I am sure that I will use the tools effectively in my life and in my classrooms. Some tools are appropriate for teaching English young learners. Online teaching maybe attractive for the students and they can participate in these activities. I think that the technology will take a great part in education to teach the lesson. If we have knowledge about computer and programs, we will have advantages thanks to this course. For enjoyable lesson, we should take consideration into this course.
Mostly, I spent a good time while creating my own web page. It consists of my some tools that I have done until now. In teaching English, we need to use computer and technology, so this course helps the students use the computer effectively. The students can improve their reading, writing, listening skills online if we use these programs to teach English in the classroom. Now I have a lot of accounts and lots of knowledge about the computer assisted language learning. I will use the computer for education apart from for enjoyment.
This course is useful and necessary for our department and I spent enjoyable time in this course.
I’d like to express my thanks to Sedat AKAYOĞLU.
