Abstract: Language learning at varying levels of learner proficiency can be a complex endeavor. Typically, participants attend formal language training and receive documentation to indicate their successful completion of courses. Increasingly however, language training involves the use of online technology in less formal and more flexible settings. This paper highlights the role of informal learning with technology, in facilitating the acquisition of non-native languages. A review of the literature reveals trends in the use of online and mobile application technology, to expand meaningful language learning opportunities in various contexts. Current mobile and web applications are featured.
