After the end of CALL treatment, the 15 students were selected for semi-structure interview The total number of questions for semi-structured interviews were seven which were adapted from 7-bipolar probability and evaluative scales to determine CALL users attitude from the studies of AImekhlafi (2001, 2003), and Pryor (1990, 1994) since the researcher implied the mix method approach in that SPPS software was used measure the quantitative part of the data and for analyzing the semistructure interview data, content analysis was done in the way like transcribing the data, interpreting the data, coding the data, and finally extracted themes which emerged from the data.
However, the findings of this study revealed the significant effects CALL on the studentsí performance and reading skills improved significantly. it has been revealed from the results that there is a significant difference between the pretest and posttest scores of the students and overall, in pretest there is 45% cumulative average score by the students and after in posttest scores the average score is 61% and mean difference is of 17% score. semi-structure interview results revealed that the students enjoyed CALL experiments in terms of understanding and comprehending lessons in much better way.
