Despite efforts have been invested in using digital technologies to enhance learners’ language learning, rarely explored are studies aiming at bridging in-class vocabulary learning with real-life learning experiences in primary school education. This study aims at investigating what primary students learned by linking in-class and real life English vocabulary learning mediated by a mobile learner-generated content (m-LGC) tool; and what students’ perception of the m-LGC use was. Case study approach was adopted. Data collection included student created learning logs and questionnaire. Both qualitative and quantitative methods were used to analyze data. The results show that students not only were able to apply the newly learned vocabulary to real life, but also were able to learn from peers about the vocabulary, and related culture. In the meantime, issues were identified, and future work is explored. Copyright © 2019 Central China Normal University.
