Abstract

We proposed SMALL (Seamless Mobile-Assisted Language Learning Support System) seeking for seamless language learning in our previous study. In this paper, we describe how far we have developed the system for the realization of seamless learning. As our first step, we aim to support English vocabulary learning, since vocabulary learning is one of the fundamental aspects of language learning. The initial evaluation of this system showed that the experimental group showed a larger improvement for the two kinds of tests than the control group. The experimental group uploaded less words, but learned more words than the control group. The system added some fun factor in vocabulary learning. The entwining function showed statistically significant effectiveness only when excluding two exceptional cases.
