Abstract
This paper aims to investigate the use of digital technologies in foreign language teaching. The importance and role of technologies is analysed in the educational process with a focus on their pros and cons, but also on the ways they are implemented in a foreign language classroom. The significant role of visualisation is also stressed, as it points at individual personality variables that need to be considered in order to prevent the emerging feelings of exhaustion and fatigue in the foreign language classroom. The particular research interest is placed around presentations as one of the crucial visual devices in the foreign language learning process. Videoconferencing is also investigated as a popular alternative in respect of their peculiarities and benefits.
