Does technology benefit language learning? A Over the last decade, there has been an unprecedented growth in the development of technology for teaching languages, including interactive websites, mobile apps and classroom software. It is abundantly clear that one of the most dominant subject areas to experience this explosion is English language teaching. After carrying out a survey among thousands of English teachers regarding the pros and cons of using technology in language teaching, some patterns in their opinions have become quite apparent. B On a positive note, the majority of English teachers consider that technology can prove advantageous to language teachers and students alike. It was also acknowledged that it could provide a greater variety of activities and enable classes to be even more interactive. Many also commented that it could be beneficial for initial English level tests, ongoing project work, and online courses. C Regrettably, however, a large number have also reported in their feedback that, even though their schools had invested in developing the resources, they had not had received an adequate orientation session of how such technology can be best used by teachers. In other cases, many who had been given an introduction still felt that they should be supported with ongoing training. This would both assist their professional development and enable them to better meet the needs of students. D Whilst it may be concluded that technology is of significant importance in the future of education, the provision of continuous training that harnesses the creativity and enthusiasm of teachers, is essential for the successful application of the newest tools in language teaching. 56 / 60 Below is an extra paragraph.
