As the advances in computer technology have reacehd global proportions, countries around the world now realize the potential benefits of incorporating computers into their education systems. Despite the positive effects of technology use on student motivation, critical thinking and language skills, integration of technology has not yet been fully acknowledged and accepted by teachers, particularly in the EFL countries. The aim of the present study is to investigate the effects of an 8-week CALL instruction as a supplement to face to face in class grammar instruction on the grammar and listening skills of Turkish EFL students as well to explore their attitudes towards CALL. 188 Turkish EFL learners enrolled at the English preparatory school of a state university in Istanbul participated in the study. Data were collected by means of grammar and listening tests and CALL attitude tests.
