This study aimed to investigate how 125 students enrolled in an English Preparatory Program at a state university use and view mobile phones for different language learning purposes. Results from a mixed methods approach rerevealed that most of the students used mobile phones for voice communication and sending/receiving SMS messages. Furthermore, results showed that students generally accepted the use of mobile phones for language learning despite having some concerns about the quality that mobile phones can bring to learning English as a foreign language within/beyond the classroom context.
