In the last 10 years, the world has experienced a sudden increase of technology, and this has had a lot of impact in the teaching of foreign languages. Learners interact with foreign language content through internet and social media, and through digital devices such as smartphones and computers. The chapters in this book discuss how lecturers in Universitis in Kenya use Technology to motivate the learning of French as a foreign language (FFL). The discourses in the chapters specifically focus on lecturers and students, who frequently use technology in their classroom to support FFL learning in universities in Kenya. Findings illustrate the potential of technology integration in French classrooms for supporting students’ French language learning in Technical University of Kenya.
