Foreign- and second-language (L2) learning have become increasingly important. To develop new techniques for language learning, a better understanding of neurocognitive mechanisms of L2 learning is needed. In this presentation, I will focus on possibilities of technology in language learning and review some studies on speech and language training that have utilized digital and speech technology. I will also tell about a digital language learning game that we have designed and present experimental results on its effects on L2 learning in children with typical or atypical language skills.
