This article discusses one innovative way of enhancing language skills through the mobile app technology in EFL settings. Based on the purposeful and meaningful mobile learning and collaboration to maximize language production, a project was designed to integrate all language skills–reading, writing, speaking, listening and translation, with students’ active engagement in planning, thinking, discussing, and interacting through a series of multilayer tasks via the social media WECHAT platform. E-portfolio was used as a means of supervision and assessment. The results showed that students made significant progress in producing language.
