Abstract

This study investigated students’ perceptions on the use of mobile applications in English language learning and explored the factors influencing these perceptions. This study included 39 Chinese English language learners at a Chinese university. Data were collected through surveys, interviews, and classroom observations, and analyzed using descriptive statistics and a coding scheme based on ACTFL’s five Cs standards. The findings suggest that students chose to use mobile apps mainly because of exams and work, and they were satisfied in using mobile apps for English language learning. Students’ purposes, teachers’ instructions and the design of apps themselves impacted students’ attitudes towards using apps. Based on these findings, pedagogical suggestions are offered for language teachers, and recommendations are provided for app designers and future researchers.
