Once, computers were seen as thinking machines or electronic tutors. Now
the computer has become one of many devices that people use to form
virtual communities of all kinds. In the field of language education,
computer mediated communication (CMC) enables students to interact with
one another free of space and time constraints and to participate in
communities of learning with their counterparts in the target culture. The
Language Learning in Computer Mediated Communities (LLCMC) Conference
explores the use of computers as a medium of communication in language
learning communities.

Conference highlights

	  Institute of Technology)
	* Special colloquium showcasing online cultural exchanges based at
