Abstract

Given that technology has provided language learners with new pathways for learning through cutting-edge pedagogy and electronic devices, this research will propose and empirically test a conceptual framework for Technology-Enabled Language Learning (TELL). Because language learning is inextricably linked to culture, this article proposes to examine students' behavioral intentions (BI) toward TELL implementation and acceptance by incorporating Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT), and its interaction with Hofstede's cultural dimensions. Three components from UTAUT are used: performance expectancy (PE), effort expectancy (EE), and facilitating conditions (FC). The study analyzes the association between the predictors using data from 203 participants. The structured questionnaire contained 18 scale-based statements, and IBM SPSS software was used to calculate descriptive statistics, cronbach's alpha, and correlation. The result shows the momentous role of effort expectancy and culture in predicting students’ decision to adopt TELL. It's fascinating to observe the cultural influence on TELL in India, a multilingual, multiethnic country.
