ABSTRACT This paper addresses the issue of the integration of technology into the foreign language curriculum. As more and more technological resources become available, it is necessary that instructors become aware of how those resources might be used to enhance foreign language teaching and learning. This discussion gives an overview of some of those resources and their pedagogical benefits; suggests creative activities for using those resources; assesses students' reaction to the integration of technology into their classes; offers guidelines for this integration; and finally, provides a glimpse into the future of language learning.
