Abstract

This study focused on the intercultural communication between Taiwanese college students and American native English speakers by means of synchronous and asynchronous technologies, such as videoconferencing and online discussion forum. We investigated the educational value, usefulness, and acceptability of technology-related language learning tools (i.e. email, discussion board, videoconferencing), and to what extent these tools facilitated the adult language learners. In addition, the learners' and instructors' perceptions of such kinds of learning tools were also explored. The collected data included pre-and post- videoconferencing activities questionnaires, evaluation sheets after each videoconferencing activity, interview transcripts, video recordings, and the researcher observation journals. The results of the study were fruitful for educators in selecting alternative learning tools to facilitate English language learning.
