The 20th century was the most technologically progressive time of modern human civilization and the 21st century seems to have accelerated this progress even more. In this time period the methods of disseminating knowledge has gone through major changes. One of the most revolutionary of these paradigm shifts have been the introduction of the computer assisted language learning – the CALL method. This paper will attempt to shed light on the definition of CALL, its historical background and extract its pros and cons through consulting various esteemed journal, books and periodicals. This paper will primarily focus on second hand data – namely multiple case studies- and the analysis of said data would be qualitative in nature. Using the above mentioned data this paper will attempt to showcase how the various implementation of CALL around the world are highly context sensitive and try to establish whether the implementing CALL increases the efficiency and effectiveness of the learning process.
