The aim of the present study is to determine the foreign language teacher candidates‘ evaluation relating to the elective Computer Assisted Language Teaching course which was conducted for four semesters between the academic years of 2007-2010 at Uludag University. The study group consists of 40 teacher candidates enrolled at Uludag University Faculty of Education, French Language Teaching Department. A questionnaire composed of one open-ended question was administered to the teacher candidates who had taken the course. At the end of the course, the candidates were asked to evaluate their experiences of the course, classroom practices, gains and teacher-student interaction. Therefore, a blank sheet of paper was distributed so that the candidates could write their answers in detail. The candidates‘ answers were decoded and interpreted by means of content analysis, a qualitative analysis method. Findings of the research revealed that the course was learner centered, the candidates had gained wide knowledge in both technical and educational points of language teaching, they were able to critically evaluate the language teaching websites, and finally, they had concerns relating to course assessment.
