  • Cali — Acronym for Computer Assisted Language Instruction. A term which has now become almost obsolete, having been replaced by CALL in the 1980s. The term fell out of favour because it became associated with Programmed Learning. See CAI, CALL, CELL, TELL. See Section 1.1, Module 1.4, headed What is CALL? and Section 2, Module 1.4, headed History of CALL.
