Abstract or Summary

Between August and December 2012 I spent an enjoyable semester on the teaching team at the National University of Timor-Leste. After my first visit there more than seven years ago as a VSA volunteer, I was keen to see what changes had occurred. I was first introduced to the National University of Timor-Leste in 2005 when my husband and I went on an assignment with Volunteer Service Abroad. In 2009 I returned to the university and introduced FLAX to the teaching staff. At that time there were very few computers on the campus, but broad band was available. I undertook some research to determine how the teachers became normalised in their thinking towards Computer Assisted Language Learning.
