Abstract

Computer-mediated communication (CMC) has received considerable attention over past twenty years to enhance foreign language teaching and learning. However, few research studies have addressed the use of text, audio, and video-based SCMC to enhance spoken English acquisition and pedagogy. This cross-national study was designed to: (a) examine relationship among the factors which, based on a review of the literature, have been found to influence the adoption of SCMC to improve spoken English acquisition? and (b) identify the salient features of a SCMC system for oral English teaching and learning. To answer the questions, a survey of tutors, interviews of learners, and observations of tutors and learners during the implementation phase were designed. The study found that among the constructs—interactivity, motivation, effectiveness, satisfaction, and technology savvy—some were significantly correlated with each other. The authors proposed a framework for effective implementation of real-time spoken English pedagogy.
