Abstract—This study examines the potential factors influencing Chinese university students’ continuance intention to use Liulishuo app to learn English speaking skills in a non-mandatory environment. This study empirically integrated post-acceptance model, Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), and introduced new variable perceived enjoyment. Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) was applied to estimate the proposed research framework based on the survey data collected from 350 Chinese university students who had experience of using the app during pandemic. The structural model confirms perceived usefulness and perceived enjoyment significantly influence students’ intentions to continue using Liulishuo app to learn English speaking skills. This study also provides valuable theoretical contributions in developing and testing related theories and practical implications to incorporating technology in higher education in China, and the instruction orientation for higher education teachers.

Keywords—continuance intention, Liulishuo app, mandatory environment, university students, perceived usefulness, perceived enjoyment
