written by two authors that is Ali Sorayyayei Azara and Hassan Nasrib. In the first journal
review, the main topic that had been highlights by the authors are about the acceptance of
Mobile Assisted Language Learning (MALL) among graduate students in Malaysia. The
acceptance of the students with the MALL eventually growing day by the according to the
development of nowadays technologies. Mostly students are more attract to use the MALL
method in classes cause it is much easier and handful in order to submit any task given only by
using the power of internet. In these modern world all the activities are done by surfing online
information and even in the education field, all the students are need to attend an online class

are more exposed to use the mobile phone in everyday activities such as texting, calling or even
attending meeting through Skype. But the researchers also concern in investigate the Iranian
EFL learner's attitudes towards the effectiveness of MALL on their listening comprehension.
This is because not all the students are good in English. The first question that had been
produced from the research is what is the effect of cell-phone based audiobooks versus its
traditional counterpart that s CD-ROM or the audiobooks cassette based on audiobooks. The
second deals that had been done by the researcher is to investigate of Iranian EFL learner's

involves 70 persons of the English Foreign Language learners from Urmia University, Zaban
Amooz in Mahabad , Iran. These participants were separate into two groups where 35 of the
participants been placed in the experimental group, 18 females and 17 males. The rest of the
participants were placed in the other group that is the comparison group consisted of the
other 35 participants, 17 of whom were females, and 18 were males. The data were collected
by using questionnaire, audiobooks and OPT test. These method were used as the pre and
post-test method to the participant, then the difference of the effectiveness of the MALL

players and the laptops in learning English. The analysis showed that the overall actual usage
of MALL for English learning was medium. The students also prefer to use laptop for
enhancing their English. It is because laptops also can be better than mobile phones in English
learning especially when it comes to reading and writing academic research since their larger
screens are more conducive for learners to read and write than mobile phones. Students also
said that iPad was not regarded as the most important device for accessing information or for
communicating with friends and lecturers in English as the mobile phone appears to be the
most convenient and valuable language learning device to the respondents since the basic
