This paper proposed a mobile learning system supporting listening diversity and speaking and investigates its effect on elementary school English learning. This study tried to help the EFL (English as Foreign Language) students who just can learn English through reading and writing in classes with stimulating their motivation to speak and listen by mobile devices. Therefore, we designed some learning activities with mobile devices to promote students speaking and to enable them to listen various speaking from others. We will investigate the correlation of students speaking and listening and their influence on learning. After experiment the result showed that doing some learning activities like listening diversity, listening times, listening involvement and speaking out have significant correlation with students' English learning achievement. Meanwhile, it was also found that our designed activities with mobile devices can stimulate students' motivation and facilitate their English speaking and listening. We suggested that English learning might refer to this study and design activities using mobile devices to encourage students to speak and listen to various high-achievement peers and make English learn much better.
