Japanese is one of the most difficult languages to learn for English-speaking students, but emerging technologies are making revolutionary changes that help to ease the learning curve. Learning Japanese in the Network Society addresses current issues of computer-assisted language learning (CALL) shared by language-teaching professionals in the new global network society. Focussing on teaching and learning Japanese as a second language, this collection emerged from previously unpublished presentations by leading Japanese scholars at the International Conference on Computer Technology and Japanese Language Education held at the University of Toronto. This book is a comprehensive resource on the current status of CALL and is essential reference material for any language-instruction course. With Contributions By: Kanji Akahori Jim Cummins Masako O.
