In the current teaching methodology, computer-assisted language instruction is considered to be an important tool that helps extend education beyond the classroom and facilitates both interactive and individualised learning. This paper is concerned with the use of on-line activities in teaching a foreign language vocabulary. Vocabulary learning includes complex processes such as the acquisition of words’ pronunciations, meanings, as well as their stylistic, morphological and syntactic properties. This paper demonstrates how on-line activities not only help students to memorise new words but also motivate them to practice foreign language vocabulary. These activities allow students to choose exercises with different levels of difficulty and, therefore, adjust the material according to their needs. They also bring together various multimedia elements essential for vocabulary learning, such as sound, images and text.
