In our increasingly mobile world, portable devices play a central role in ensuring the continuity of the learning process and they also provide access to
education and training. Mobile learning technologies become a valuable addition to traditional learning techniques, as students have the opportunity to
participate in educational activities at any time and place. This paper reviews the benefits and challenges of mobile learning and its prospects for foreign language learning. Experiments at the National Research Tomsk Polytechnic University indicate that mobile learning can be a helpful tool to accelerate learning, encourage both independent and collaborative learning experiences, provide valuable interactions, enhance opportunities for language practice and promote
lifelong learning.


Keywords –academic achievement, foreign language learning, informal learning, mobile applications, mobile learning.
