Abstract

For the foreign language learning, it is important to understand the cultural context in which the language is spoken. Understanding different cultures is indispensable to learn foreign languages. It helps to generate interest in learning the language. We propose a quiz system to help students to understand the foreign culture in a mobile-learning environment. This is a mobile phone based system which supports the students answering the questions about the foreign culture anywhere, anytime. Utilizing this system, students can understand the culture of the target language. We present the design and implement of the system.
