This paper outlines instructional design considerations for mobile assisted language learning (MALL). The key advantage of the mobile technology is that it provides language learners with real world context. This means that the learner has the ability to access, create, and share information from anywhere and at anytime in the world. Language learning experiences can be richly enhanced with the ability to access information as needed in the context of the world around us. This enables mobile language learners to personalize their learning experience based upon their need and level of language proficiency. Instructional designers must carefully consider both the pedagogical affordances and constraints of mobile technology in order to maximize the full potential of MALL.
