ABSTRACT
In the field of Applied Linguistics, Computer Assisted Language Learning, CALL, has played an important role in improving learning of foreign languages. A central problem is how to effectively integrate the use of technology in language teaching methodology. In line with the methodological model of CALL, this paper describes and explains the development, implementation and evaluation of a technology application for teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language (ELE). The theoretical foundation is based on the theory of the task-based approach and the interaction hypothesis. The evaluation of the application was carried out through a quasi-experimental study without a control group, in which 21 students of ELE at intermediate level (B1) participated. The results show the effectiveness of this model, since students significantly increased their linguistic and communicative learning at the end of the process of language intervention.
