Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The paper reports on a small pilot study to explore the role of Short Message Service (SMS) in English as Second Language (ESL) vocabulary learning for mobile audiences. In this study, SMS was integrated into web-based vocabulary learning. Ten participants were involved in this study. An online test system was set-up for recorded assessment data collection, and an open-ended questionnaire interview was conducted via e-mail to collect qualitative data. The research findings show significant improvements in the learner performance and in their attitudes towards using SMS in their vocabulary learning. Copyright © 2008 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.
