Computer Assisted Language Learning Volume 11, Number 2, ISSN 0958-8221


Investigated incidental language-learning by subjects using multimedia as a self-study and mandatory component of an undergraduate module.

Analysis compared language items of multimedia input, and those made salient through tasks with learners' output. (Author/VWL)
