Language teachers have an individual responsibility for “the maintenance and growth of their own CALL proficiency” (Hubbard, , p. ).Motteram says, “Teachers are central to what happens in the classroom, because they have the knowledge and skills to find creative ways to support learners’ language development” (p. ).What if teachers do not have the knowledge and skills?   An acquired language needs to be repeated in a various number of guises before it can be actively used by the student. Studies have shown that new linguistic functions need to be repeated at least six times before most learners can consider the new piece of language theirs. After six repetitions, the newly-acquired language skills are usually still only passively activated.
