One of the most important uses of technology is that it makes it easy for instructors to incorporate multimedia into their teaching. While we use all of our senses to take in information, we each seem to have preferences in how we learn best.

Computer-assisted language learning can reduce the anxiety of students and turns out to be a positive side of learning.

Students can choose an English teaching program they are interested in and learn on their pace of learning. The English learning program will just serve the student's desired goal of learning. In one sense, students easily get the individual attention from the computer. Second, the function of a multimedia lab is multiple. It can not only assume the role of a traditional language lab, but also offer teachers more powerful teaching tools with the aid of modern computer technology.
