ABSTRACT
The article presents views of various language teachers on the future of the computer-aided language learning (CALL) practitioners and researchers. With the field of learning technologies and CALL in particular, maturing because of development in technological applications, the language teaching and learning community feels it is time to act. There has been widespread debate whether normalisation is indeed what the future of CALL will be. A language teacher writes that despite being new to the normalisation of CALL debate, she has been developing some thoughts on this through her own teaching and learning experiences.
