The study presents the design of a mobile task-based learning activity (called MTBL) for English-as-foreign-language learners (EFL) to investigate how MTBL teaching approach affects the learning achievement through an exploration fieldwork supported by mobile devices. The design of learning tasks is tailored to engage learners in exploration tasks in light of TBL theoretical basis. Learners are expected to be situated in both real and virtual worlds language learning environment and exposed to a pragmatic language input offered by mobile devices with pre-designed resources to facilitate their language learning. The research aims to understand how MTBL affects English-learning gain and whether mobile devices could scaffold learning, and further discuss which group of learners in language proficiency might benefit most from the teaching strategy on overall MTBL implementation in the aspects of learning achievement, learning process and satisfaction based on this specific learning task.
