Abstract

The use of mobile technology in language learning is rapidly growing. However, research on the use of mobile applications to foster English language learning particularly as a pre-language learning tool is still lacking. Therefore, the aim of this study is to investigate students’ perceptions on the use of Mobile Application in English Course (MApEC) as a pre-language learning tool to help prepare them for the actual class. A total of 29 Semester 1 Diploma students from a selected higher institution in Negeri Sembilan participated in the survey which was conducted to find out their perceptions on the use of MApEC as a whole, and as a pre-language learning tool to assist them prior to the actual English language class. The results indicate that participants were in favour of using MApEC and perceived that it is a very helpful pre-language learning tool. Therefore, the initial findings of this study can be used to further develop MApEC not only as a useful pre-language learning tool, but for English language learning as a whole.
