With the great development of computers and Internet, more and more second language teachers and learners are using computers for foreign language teaching and learning today. Although the use of computer in teaching and learning has a positive effect on the achievement levels of second language learners, there are still some barriers to the widely application of computers. This paper, first, from the historical perspective studies the different developing phases of computer assisted language teaching, and then mainly, examines the benefits and barriers of computers in language teaching and learning. The paper emphasizes that language educators must recognize both the benefits and limitations of using computers so that they can try their best to overcome the barriers and get the maximum effectiveness of technology to enhance second language learning.
