Advances in computer technology have enabled computers to be used widely in language learning. This paper examines the possible contribution of the structure of rhizome rather than trees to the organization of language learning space and time. (Delueze and Guattari, 1987). It describes an environment which incorporates the concept of ®rhizomatic' learning in language learning. In this environment learners are provided with a range of multimedia learning tools such as Cdrom resources with linked sound and video files; a voice comparison mechanism which enables learners to analyze their own speech and so on. The role of ICT technology is evaluated quantitatively and qualitatively. Experimental results outlined in this paper demonstrate that Mandarin Chinese L2 learners, not only achieve a faster rate of acquisition of Mandarin Chinese, they also exhibit a higher level of self-generated motivation and initiative their own process of learning.
