The following academic journals explore the impact of modern technologies on the teaching and learning of second and foreign languages:

LLT Journal ImageLanguage Learning & Technology (LLT)
“A refereed journal for second and foreign language scholars and educators… Sponsored by the National Foreign Language Resource Center (NFLRC) at the University of Hawai’i and the Center for Language Education and Research (CLEAR) at Michigan State University” [it’s free online]


CALL Journal ImageComputer Assisted Language Learning (CALL)
“CALL is an intercontinental and interdisciplinary journal which leads the field in its dedication to all matters associated with the use of computers in language learning (L1 and L2), teaching and testing. It provides a forum to discuss the discoveries in the field and to exchange experience and information about existing techniques. The scope of the journal is intentionally wide-ranging and embraces a multitude of disciplines.”


ReCALL Journal ImageThe Journal of the European Association for Computer Assisted Language Learning (ReCALL)
“It seeks to fulfil the stated aims of EUROCALL as a whole, and more particularly to promote the use of foreign languages within Europe and beyond, providing an international focus for the promulgation of innovative research in the area of computer-assisted language learning and technology-enhanced language learning in education and training.”


According to Google Scholar Metrics, the above three journals are the only ones ranked among the top 20 academic publications in Educational Technology that have a focus on the learning of foreign languages (LLT is the highest ranking of the three and is available for free online). However, these are not the only reliable academic journals dedicated to research in technologies for learning second languages.


CALICO Journal ImageComputer Assisted Language Instruction Consortium (CALICO) Journal
“The CALICO Journal is the journal of the Computer Assisted Language Instruction Consortium (CALICO) and is devoted to the dissemination of information concerning the application of technology to language teaching and language learning.”


FLTMAG imageForeign Language Technology Magazine (FLTMAG)
“The FLTmag is a quarterly practice-oriented online publication dedicated to the field of foreign language technology. Our goal is to provide useful and practical information about technology integration in the classroom such as emerging technologies, interesting books, classroom projects, institutional initiatives, conferences and symposiums and language centers worldwide. We’re hoping to become a public forum promoting engaged and productive discussions around burning issues in the field of language technology in the U.S. and beyond.”


IJCALLT ImageInternational Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching (IJCALLT)
“The International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching (IJCALLT) serves as a forum for researchers, teachers, practitioners, and education professionals to discuss and share their ideas, experience, and knowledge in combining computer technology with language teaching and learning. Due to the fast pace of technological change, innovative teaching approaches and strategies should be developed to successfully integrate new technologies into language teaching. This journal provides opportunities to evaluate, improve, and apply such strategies in the fields of CALL and foreign/second language learning.”


System Image
“This international journal is devoted to the applications of educational technology and applied linguistics to problems of foreign language teaching and learning. Attention is paid to all languages and to problems associated with the study and teaching of English as a second or foreign language. The journal serves as a vehicle of expression for colleagues in developing countries. System prefers its contributors to provide articles which have a sound theoretical base with a visible practical application which can be generalized. The review section may take up works of a more theoretical nature to broaden the background.”


JALT CALL Journal ImageThe Journal of the CALL Special Interest Group of the Japan Association for Language Teaching (JALT CALL Journal)
“The JALT CALL Journal (ISSN 1832-4215) is an international refereed journal published from April, 2005. The Journal encompasses and builds upon the SIG newsletter, C@lling Japan, and is committed to excellence in research in all areas within the field of Computer Assisted Language Learning, while at the same time offering teaching ideas and suggestions from teachers’ personal experiences.”


CALL-EJ ImageComputer Assisted Language Learning – Electric Journal (CALL-EJ)
“With a major focus on computer-assisted language learning (CALL), CALL-EJ solicits and welcomes articles and reviews on research and practice in the fields of computer-assisted instruction (CAI) / computer-managed instruction (CMI) / computer-assisted learning (CAL) / computer-enhanced language learning (CELL) / computer-mediated communication (CMC) in ESL, EFL or other languages. Contributions to second language acquisition and computers, language assessment and computers, applied linguistics and computers, and other related areas are also encouraged.”


IALLT ImageThe IALLT Journal for Language Learning Technologies
“The IALLT Journal publishes praxis-oriented research and review articles addressing the interface of technology with language teaching, learning and/or research. Often, these articles are written in the form of case study ethnographies, quasi-experimental classroom research or emerging technology reviews. “
