Abstract. Many researches has shown that using CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning) in teaching EFL (English as Foreign Language) can lead towards an effective learning outcome where students can practice the language in an interactive and authentic manner, with the help of multi-media. CALL enhances students’ achievement, while at the same time ‘increases motivation and autonomy in learning’ (Doughty 2003, p 57).

This study will try to investigate students’ attitudes towards CALL and how it can accommodate students’ different learning needs and keep them motivated. Nowadays, English needs to be taught with a focus on communicative approach meaning that there is a need to look at the learning outcomes that technology in teaching brings. The teaching techniques presented in the class should give students the necessary skills to use the target language outside the classroom as well. There are many technology tools which can help students to store the acquired concepts and information into their long-term memory.
