Abstract

With the development of mobile technology and the proliferation of mobile apps, language learners can capitalise on these applications to enhance their English. Although their portability, connectedness, and flexibility are widely acknowledged, it is questionable whether a method like this can help English major students at Ho Chi Minh University of Industry and Trade (HUIT) acquire English reading and listening abilities well. To figure them out, quantitative is the methodology chosen, including the questionnaire survey and the experimental test. The study will first find out the attitude of 97 English major students learning at HUIT towards online learning apps. Then, the next step was to examine the effect of online apps on their English reading comprehension and listening. The main finding is that almost all of them have a positive view and attitude towards mobile online apps, although there is also a small group that has an opposite opinion, and the studying method through MALL is productive and useful for these college students to hone their two input English skills. Besides, some online learning applications liked and suited for English major students are also shown. Plus, the researcher also offers some helpful ways for them to opt for a suitable approach for themselves and learn English on their own.
