Hello CALL-ISers!

This newsletter is packed with letters, articles and columns from all over the world on a wide variety of topics. So dive in. In addition to our Letters, one of our “Leadership Updates” is related to the EVO. If you don’t know about this, you should put it on your radar. This is a yearly series of workshops that are free, and the EVO helps develop skills for teachers using CALL in their classes. It seems like these workshops offer something for everyone. Also, make sure you check out the first article by John Allan who not only explains the benefits of H5P but offers multiple examples of how it can be applied and used in class. Two graduate students, from the University of South Florida’s Department of Applied Linguistics, Kayla Figueroa and Anastasiya Pylypenko, have submitted book reviews related to the area of CALL. This edition Anastasiya Pylypenko reviews K. C. Ramirez’s et al (2021). Online World Language Instruction Training And Assessment: An Ecological Approach. The other review will be printed in the next edition. Lastly, Suzan Stamper completes a column while on her vacation to the US. If that's not dedication, I don't know what is. Suzan interviews three newcomers to CALL-IS.

Thanks to all our generous contributors and the newsletter editing team.

If there is something that you would like to see in our newsletter, or if you’d like to join the newsletter team, please feel free to contact us.
