Abstract

This paper examines the effects that content-based CALL software may have on the understanding of reading texts regarding Kamma, a Buddhist principal concept of actions and reactions, by a group of Buddhist monks studying at Mahachulalongkornrajavidyalaya University. To accomplish this aim, a pre-post test design was used to investigate whether content-based CALL software could improve reading comprehension within an EFL context. Findings indicated that the participants’ learning achievement was higher after the content-based CALL activity and that they had positive views on the content-based CALL in relation to their reading performance. These results raised interesting issues related to the use of technology in content-based classrooms.
