Teachers’ and Learners’ Attitudes toward the Use of Web-based Language Learning (WBLL)

Vahede Nosrati


The dynamic incorporation of computers and language learning has empowered language learners to process different sources and to internalize data more effectively through individual engagement. Thus, for decades, computer-assisted language learning and web-based language learning have received considerable amount of attention among researchers and language teachers by serving interactive, multi-sensory, and autonomous learning opportunities. The present study is concerned with exploring how EFL students and teachers perceive the use of computer technologies and their integration into foreign language teaching and learning. The data were collected through a researcher-made questionnaire distributed to thirty EFL upper-intermediate students and thirty EFL teachers who were selected randomly through convenience sampling respectively. The findings indicated that both teachers and learners had positive attitudes toward computer technology use both in their daily lives and in language instruction. In addition, it was found that there was a significant difference between the teachers’ and the learners’ attitudes toward web 2.0 applications, indicating that the use of these web 2.0 applications were more prevalent among EFL learners.
