    • Abstract:
      This research aimed to look at students' perspectives on learning language through two technology-based speech recognition programmes, ImmerseMe and ELSA (English Language Speech Assistant). Data were collected from qualitative research instruments in April 2018. Five university-level students performed activities to improve their English and other languages in ImmerseMe for 30 minutes twice in two weeks, whereas they did activities to build up their English in ELSA once. The researcher observed them, and then interviewed them asking questions about their learning via these programmes. The findings showed that students had contrasting views on the programmes drawing attention to the programmes' benefits and potential improvements. This study demonstrated that Speech Recognition Technology (SRT) improved their speaking and listening skills. It makes recommendations for students, teachers, institutions, and designers to consider the effectiveness of SRT in language learning environments. It indicates the need to design a learning environment with a well-equipped programme.
