This collection publishes refereed papers from APACALL and the GLoCALL 2007 Conference, which was held at Hanoi University in Hanoi and SEAMEO RETRAC in Ho Chi Minh City in 2007. It presents diverse engagements with computer-assisted language learning (CALL) in local and global contexts.

In line with the aims of the GLoCALL conference, the authors of the papers share their knowledge and experience on how to use computer technology to make language learning more effective and pleasant and how to adapt the technology to develop language teachers’ professionalism in CALL.

This collection of articles exhibit the considerable diversity of CALL and the efforts to contextualise CALL locally and globally. They expand our understanding of CALL research and practice and provide us with ideas of how CALL can be used in multiple ways.

This issue is designed to encourage readers to begin or continue their adventures in the world of CALL and is important reading for language educators.
