Abstract

Grammar and vocabulary instruction in the English for Specific Purposes (ESP) context are pronounced significant to help ESP learners do well in the language. Because grammar and vocabulary learning among these learners is a frustrating practice, they perform poorly. Accordingly, this paper aims at finding out the extent to which Mobile Assisted Language Learning (MALL) impacts grammar and vocabulary instruction by looking at what outlooks third-year Finance of Banking and Insurance teachers and students have to using mobile devices in grammar and vocabulary instruction. Besides, it attempts to learn about how Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy helps these learners reach the target by designing a mobile application (app) to foster grammar and vocabulary learning for these learners. Data on teachers and students perspectives have been gathered by means of a questionnaire and a semi-structured interview, respectively. The results reveal that both teachers and students are positive to mobile device use for grammar and vocabulary instruction, and that the researcher’s mobile app based on Bloom’s digital Taxonomy appears to be a smart endeavour that helps students satisfy their needs to digitalizing their learning practices according to their actual competences and affordances in particular.
