Résumé : This article claims that despite the shortcomings of current software for Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL), the computer is an adequate medium of teaching (some) reading comprehension skills. The author stresses using the computer as a tool at the teacher's disposal, as opposed to using the computer as a surrogate teacher. Three examples of exercises which are part of a semi-structured CALL system are given, following which there is a short description of how users have access to a database system which is designed to correspond to a student population's specific vocabulary requirements, while keeping the teacher informed of these. © 1988 Oxford University Press.
