Abstract


This study examines the benefits of using the mobile application Learn English Grammar for English as a Foreign Language (EFL) with students attending King Abdul Aziz University in Saudi Arabia. The participants consisted of fifty-two female pre-intermediate level students in the foundation year program, with twenty-seven assigned to the experimental group and twenty-five forming the control. Both groups undertook a pre-test to ensure an equal level of skill and a post-test to establish any statistically significant differences in their grammatical attainment. The findings revealed a significant difference at p=0.006 in favor of the experimental group. The students completed a questionnaire, which revealed a positive attitude towards the application, while the teacher’s reflective notes indicated that it created an exciting and motivating learning environment. This study contributes to the area of mobile learning in EFL classrooms by highlighting the importance of mobile applications for both improving the classroom environment and facilitating students’ language acquisition.
