In many online language-learning environments, technology is efficiently used to deliver input and to provide individualized practice for the L2 learner. However, this systematic methodology rarely allows for relevant and meaningful expression of the self, nor communicative interaction with the other (i.e., the larger online L2 learning community). In this presentation, we will share our best technology-based practices for establishing and maintaining successful communication with the L2 learner(s), helping the L2 learner develop and express – in the target language - the self, and enabling the L2 learner to significantly engage with other L2 learners in the online setting. In particular, we show how to “add back” the inherent humanness of language learning in a computer-assisted language learning approach.
