Thus, it is very important to carry out specific and focused studies related to computer-assisted language learning, in order to acquire effective outcomes. Moreover, there is huge need of studies related to CALL, however, in context of EFL, as studies in EFL context are very rare, and thus, new studies will allow a more comprehensive understanding related to pros and cons of the technology. For this purpose, the proposed study will attempt to identify and
