Abstract—This qualitative case study investigated Indonesian English as Foreign Language (EFL) learners’ perceptions and experiences of IELTS m-learning preparation. It aimed to explore the learners’ perceived advantages and challenges of IELTS m-learning, self-directed m-learning strategies, and the extent to which m-learning supports their IELTS preparation. Data collected through interviews were analyzed following the Framework for the Rational Analysis of Mobile Education (FRAME). The findings revealed that there are some correlations between the advantages and the challenges of IELTS mobile learning adoption. This study also found that the learners’ learning strategies for IELTS preparation were mostly related to motivation in which it drove them to expand some efforts towards their IELTS practices. IELTS mobile learning was also found to have supported their learning experience to a great extent.
Index Terms—The FRAME model, IELTS, MALL, self-regulated learning.
