    Abstract

    In recent years, there has been a concentration on how input enhances students' language learning. There has also been investigations into how CD-ROMs could contribute to thelanguage learning process. However, what is not understood to any great degree is how student interactions with commercially produced CD-ROMs result in language learning. This paper reports on a small study which looked at how students with extreme learning styles (visual/verbal/sequential/global) made use of different features of two CDs. In particular, it reports on how students made comprehensible the input that they received and how features of the CDs facilitated or restricted their learning.
