This paper will investigate the theoretical foundation behind the use of multimedia in language learning and give an overview of guidelines for creating an effective learning environment using multimedia. Examples will be given of how CALL was used for achieving different study goals, i.e. improving different aspects of language knowledge. After defining CALL and multimedia, which are the key concepts in this paper, related cognitive theories will be presented. These cognitive theories provide the basis for multimedia learning, which is the usual type of learning with the aid of a computer. Furthermore, phases of CALL will be presented in order to show how the field developed over time. Since multimedia materials have a crucial role in CALL, guidelines will be given for the successful implementation of multimedia into material for learning languages. The process of learning a language with multimedia will also be explained. Apart from that, the role of animation in CALL will be researched. Features of CALL will be discussed. However, the paper will focus on vocabulary acquisition with the aid of computer. Lastly, the concept of e-learning in relation with language learning will be researched in addition to giving an overview of other uses for computers in language learning.
