dc.description.abstractListening is undoubtedly a fundamental language skill to develop when learning a foreign language due to its constant use by the L2 learner. However, in classrooms students feel frustrated because the listening activities designed for its development are not understandable for them and become reluctant to work in classes on this skill; as a result, most students usually find EFL learning uninteresting or boring. The purpose of this exploratory case study was to explore which aspect of the listening skill students developed the most when implementing MALL (Mobile-Assisted Language Learning) and what were their perceptions towards the use of smartphones in EFL lessons. In order to meet that end, this study employed a diagnostic and final test, listening tasks, students’ diaries and a questionnaire to answer which listening skill aspect students develop the most and their perceptions towards MALL. Coding and descriptive analysis helped to analyze the data gathered. The findings of this study suggest that MALL is an efficient strategy to develop listening skills in the L2, especially concerning the identifying expressions and set of utterances that act to create meaning aspect. Additionally, MALL can also be used as a different strategy to learn a foreign language in an interesting and dynamic way.eng
