Moreover, computers have facilitated the teaching and testing procedures of certain skills like speaking and listening, adopted for training large groups of learners. These skills are no doubt taught in conventional language classrooms but not always tested. The computer with multimedia technology makes it possible for us to test the proficiency levels of these skills also. This is because multimedia can present information effectively in an integrated format using text, graphics, sound, animation and video. The present study aims at finding out the pedagogical significance of the use of computers along with that of tailor made software meant for language teaching and testing. Five null hypotheses were formulated that enabled the researcher to analyse the results obtained from experiments conducted.
