Fourth Generation Language techniques are used to provide an environment in which authors with little or no programming experience can easily and quickly create CAL (Computer Aided Learning) material. This approach arises out of collaboration between the French and Spanish Departments and the Computer Science Department in the Multifacet Language Laboratory project which is investigating the incorporation of CAL, interactive video, voice recognition and speech synthesis into the traditional language laboratory.
