Yuan Yuan
Abstract—The paper aims at analyzing how to improve College English vocabulary teaching with the aid of a Mobile App. The research objects are 60 freshmen of non-English majors from two classes of a provincial medical university in Mainland China. Based on the contrast of vocabulary tests results between the control group and the experimental group, the author analyzes the influences of a Mobile App aid on College English vocabulary teaching. The main findings of this research can be listed as follows: students’ pronunciation performances of required vocabulary in experimental group are much better than those of the control group; vocabulary spelling of students with the Mobile App aid learning is more accurate than that of those without the Mobile App aid; the experimental group students identify the meanings of required vocabulary more effectively than the control group students; the experimental group students tend to apply more newly-learned vocabulary required in the designed task. The results gained are of great methodological significance in the vocabulary teaching and learning.
