This study demonstrates that using PowerPoint in the second language classroom at the intermediate level increases grammatical success in both nominal subjunctive and in some cases, relative indicative clauses. While the results suggest that both the experimental group and comparison group performed significantly better on the posttest in nominal clauses, only the experimental group performed significantly better on the posttest in relative clauses. The data were also analyzed in terms of learnability and second language grammatical capabilities as well as in terms of implications for the L2 classroom, suggesting the need to capitalize on today’s second language learners’ ability to appreciate and absorb information with greater ease and accuracy through the use of PowerPoint technology. Language instructors are urged to incorporate PowerPoint presentations when teaching all types of grammar lessons.
