Abstract

Winston Churchill quotes “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference”.

In any learning process, having the right attitude is the first step towards improvement. In academics attitude plays a vital role in the learning process, as it impacts the student’s interest in the subject.

When assessing the effectiveness of a teaching method, the first thing taken into consideration is the students’ performance which serves a valid data for investigation. In today’s technology era, computer has carved a niche for itself even in pedagogy with the incorporation of CALL in ESL classrooms. Thus, the purpose of this study was to determine the students’ perception on the use of CALL in ESL classroom and how it effects the development of their English language skills. A questionnaire was used to assess these research questions. The perception of 70 first year Engineering students, pursuing Btech in Computer Science at Reva University was analyzed. The heterogeneous group of participants was found to have a positive attitude towards using CALL in English language classroom, as it enhanced their performance and honed their English language skills. The study implies that CALL training to be included in the last semester of the Engineering course so that the student gains the due maximum benefit of CALL programs, and suggestions for further study in the researched field was provided.

Keywords: Computer Assisted Language Learning, Students’ perception and Positive attitude
