Problem Statement: Computers are considered to be powerful tools supporting the process of teaching and learning, and it has been declared that ICT has particularly changed the language-learning environment and settings. The studies on technology with language learning have usually been comparative studies on the effectiveness of a new technology with more traditional ways of learning. Thus, there is a need for studies evaluating the instructional methodology of technology-supported language learning and teaching environments so that one can determine the nature of learning through technology and why there is a need for method-based educational software.
