Recently, classrooms have been equipped with highly developed technological tools; however, the training of teachers, who have the main role in teaching process, on Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) is ignored dramatically. Thus, the purpose of this qualitative study was to examine the perspectives of pre-service teachers of English towards CALL after taking 14-week long CALL course. The participants of the study were 69 pre-service teachers of English, whose age ranged from 21 to 28. As a result, it was found that the participants were anxious before the course; however, this anxiety changed at the end of the course and they felt more confident about CALL tools. Moreover, the semester of the course was considered very late and the participants believed that this course should have been offered at early grades of the undergraduate program. Finally, it is recommended that CALL course should be integrated into the teacher training programs in early grades if the future teachers are expected to teach 21st century students.
