This paper will present an overview of several years of practice and reflexion on the role of an electronic voting system to teach a language (French). This light technology combines the advantage of traditional classroom learning in terms of human interaction with the benefits of immediate electronic feedback from all the participants.

The paper will show the effectiveness of such technology in promoting some of the elements considered to be necessary for successful learning, such as various forms of concurrent interaction:

- with the task (attention and awareness)

- with previous knowledge (cognitive constructivism)

- with others (peer instruction and social constructivism)

- with the tutor (reciprocal and immediate feed back)

as well as the impact of immediate and non threatening feedback both on the learners and the tutors.
