Abstract

Interactive television (iTV) is a new media technology that has great potential for supporting language learning, particularly for independent adult learners. However, in order for it to succeed it needs to fit in with these learners' approaches to language learning. While there is an extensive literature on many other aspects of language learning and teaching, particularly in classroom settings, we know surprisingly little about the independent language learner's attitudes and approaches to learning and to technologies for supporting it. We report on a study of adult learners undertaken as part of a project to develop iTV services for language learning.
