This paper describes a Computer-Supported Mobile Learning (CSML) environment for language learning, called Language-learning Outside the Classroom with Handhelds (LOCH). In the environment, the teacher assigns field activities to the students, who go around the town to fulfil them and share their individual knowledge and experiences. The main aim of this project, called One-Day Trip with PDA, was to integrate the knowledge acquired in the classroom and the real needs of the students in their daily life. This paper also presents the evaluation by five different groups of foreign students for the past three years.
