The use of Modern technology in foreign language education



Teaching foreign languages has a long, extended history. Ever Since man needed to communicate with other nations, the teaching of a foreign language gained a marked significance. By the end of the 18th century, after the industrial revolution, learning a foreign language and therefore teaching it became even more important. As in teaching a language the main goal is to enable learners to read, write, speak, and comprehend in that language, then studying the factors that have a key role in helping learners and improving their skills becomes more significant than before. Teaching a foreign language is almost impossible if we do not take cultural aspects into consideration. Therefore, we are required to familiarize learners with the culture of the target language community. For this purpose, cinema has been used and referred to as one of the important means for reflecting the culture of the community that speaks a special language.
