The effect of mobile-assisted language learning on speaking accuracy of EFL learners
As a type of technology-enhanced learning tool, mobile-assisted language learning (MALL) provides a rich input environment enabling learners to learn a second language beyond the classroom. The present study was an attempt to explore the effectiveness of MALL in providing learners with opportunities to foster their oral accuracy. For this purpose, a total of 35 English as a Foreign Language (EFL) learners were assigned into two groups. In the experimental group (n=16), learners were asked to engage with ACO as an interactive mobile-assisted application while in the control group (n=19), learners did not receive any such intervention. Speaking accuracy was measured by oral narrative pre- and post-tests. The findings of statistical analysis revealed the positive effects of MALL, highlighting the essence of supplementing formal learning at school by non- and informal learning in enthusiastic and motivating ways through the use of ever-developing new technological aids. Implications for the language classrooms are presented.
