Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of CALL/Web-based instruction on improving EFL learners’pronunciation ability. To this end, 85 students who were enrolled in a language institute in Rasht were selected assubjects. These students were given the Oxford Placement Test in order to validate their proficiency levels. They werethen divided into two groups of 30 and were randomly assigned to two treatment conditions (experimental andcontrol). A pre-test of pronunciation was administered to two groups, then the students were exposed to the treatmentsfor 12 sessions. The CALL/Web-based instruction was used in the experimental group while conventional methodswere employed in the control group. Based on the statistical analysis, there found to be a significant difference betweenthe performance of the control and the experimental groups. The findings also displayed that the web-based learningwas effective in enhancing learners’ motivation in improving pronunciation. The findings of the present study mayhave implications for L2 learners, teachers, and materials developers
