ABSTRACT

The number of smartphone users has been sharply increasing every year and mobile learning content providers have released numerous educational smartphone applications(apps) including those for Chinese language teaching (CLT) in a very short time. This paper From the investigated apps, five popular apps were analyzed and evaluated to determine the key features of popular CLT word apps. Among the multiple implications of the results, some are very important for improving existing CLT word apps and producing better products: first, areas other than vocabulary should be produced in order to provide variety; second, accessibility should be increased for the users of different smartphones; last, current CLT apps should include at least one or two different activities to help learners recycle content. And then, further research should be encouraged in order to improve the quality of CLT word apps.
