An Analysis of Current Language Learning Software

Laura Vawter, Alke Martens

Abstract

To start the development of an optimal digital learning environment for language learning we have started with the first question: What current language learning software is available to users? To answer this question an analysis of current computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) software is necessary. This paper expounds on the systematic analysis of 69 current language software. Based on this structured analysis, we have developed a first framework of requirements for an digital language learning environment. For this purpose, control, user input, software feedback and theoretical educational frameworks were analysed within this investigation. The analysis demonstrates a lack of constructivist frameworks and a higher prevalence of behaviourist educational frameworks in current language software.
