In summary, It is worthy of note that the factors are not limited to these only, however, if the following points are considered and proper measures are taken, the test of knowledge would be proved both by the document and the brain at work too.
1. SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH AND DISCOVERY: New invention and innovation carried out by scientist is done through the help of computer because of its speed and fast processing capability when number of complex arithmetic and mathematical calculations are involved, without the help of computer it would have been difficult for human existence, the new discovery is done with the help of computer.2. ENGINEERING DESIGN(MECHANICAL, ELECTRICAL & ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN)computer have being so useful in engineering like architectural design e.g designing of bridge, building etc. Mechanical design e.g manufacturing of automobile vehicle, and Electrical design for automobile and building e.g air craft, mobile vehicle etc.3. MEDICINE(MEDICAL RESEARCH): Medical researches are being enhanced with the help of computer e.g. computer is being use in modeling parts of human being in order to increase understanding of how the organs interact, e.g Computer Assisted Diagnostics(Doctor Expert System) is a growing field of medicine.4. NETWORKING(INTERNET): internet is a vital resources to human existence, networking enhances internet through the help of computer technology, the help of computer networking makes it easy for communication and information to be share among individual, the interconnection of different computers makes it easy for human to communicate and share information through mobile phone, transact business using P.O.S (Point Of Sale device) etc.5. EDUCATION: Computer is a discipline field of study in a formal education which broading the mind of humanity, computer is being thought in school, it aided instruction where lecturers/teachers can display what they are teaching to large numbers of student at a time, it also enhance a distance learning1.

This study aimed to explore the impact of computer-assisted laguage leaig o Iaia EFL studets oaulalearning. Participants of the study were 76 students – 29 males and 47 females – learning English as a foreign language inParto, Sadr, Poyesh and Andishe Institutes in Ahvaz who were selected after taking theNelson English Language Test as a proficiency test. They were randomly divided into two groups. One group was taken as control and the other as experimental group. Both groups participated in the teacher-made test of vocabulary, Vocabulary Levels Test (VLT), and Word-Associates Test (WAT) as pre-test. During class sessions the control group was taught the vocabulary, in the conventional way, through the printed textbook while the experimental group taught by the software version of the same book. Three ANCOVAs were run to compare the performance of experimental and control groups after the treatment period. The results of the ANCOVAs revealed that using vocabulary learning software was more effective than using printed book on vocabulary learning, vocabulary breadth, and vocabulary depth of the participants. The results of the present study could help EFL course book designers, foreign language institutes, educational planners, material developers, teachers, and learners to provide a better context for EFL learning.
