Chansophea Chhum, Wilawan Champakaew


Based on cognitive constructivism, this research examines the effects of Mobile assisted language learning (MALL) on learners’ willingness to communicate (WTC) in English at a Thai university. The study adopted a purposive sampling technique with 20 participants in a control group without any special treatment and 20 in an experimental group with the requirement to use a mobile application. The researcher used WTC survey questionnaires and student log to collect the data. Mean, Standard Deviation, Independent- and Pair-Samples t-test are used in data analysis.From 130 respondents, learners’ WTC was reported at neutral level. After 8 weeks, the results collected from pre- and post-survey questionnaires showed that each group of participants improved their WTC significantly(p<0.05) whilst there is no significant difference between the improvementsof the two groups.Thus, this result needs a further triangulation from a more exploratory design such as observation to see more concrete evidences for such difference
