Abstract: The aim of this paper is to provide a multiliteracies approach to English as a Foreign Language (EFL) instruction in order to overcome its educational limitations inherent in most EFL settings. In a number of monolingual societies having their own dominant languages other than English, students have experienced multiple challenges to learning English including limited opportunities to speak English. Although communication technologies have been regarded as a promising solution, the limitations within EFL education have not been fully addressed. This situation has further caused more serious issues such as dominance of Western culture and socio-economic inequalities of access to English learning resources. Therefore, we develop a Computer-assisted Multiliteracies Program (CaMP) as an alternative approach to EFL learning and teaching.
