For the past five years the Missionary Training Center of The Church
of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has been using a computer
system dubbed Technology Assisted Language Learning program, or TALL,
said Elaine Lindsay, a BYU linguistics masters student. Lindsay
recently conducted a study on how LDS missionaries were responding
to the system.
In her recent study, Lindsay found that boredom was the major
complaint among the slower language students when working with the
computer. She also found that computer bugs and lack of lab space
were also concerns.
