This research examines the merits and demerits of CALL implementation in Jordanian primary education as perceived by 200 primary-stage EFL teachers. A questionnaire was constructed and used to collect the data. The findings reveal that the most frequently perceived merits are immediate feedback, motivating students learning, initiating more interaction, excitement and enjoyment, and language skills integration. On the other hand, the most frequently perceived demerits of CALL implementation were found to be insufficient number of computers, technical problems, student view of the computer as an entertainment tool, weak student computer skills, and cost. The study concludes with a number of pedagogical implications and recommendations for further research.
