Summary/Abstract: The paper focuses first on the novelties accessible to foreign language learning adults by MALL and mobile language learning, thus drawing a brief overview of the research into novel affordances they offer and implications for a new language learning methodology. Secondly, we explore attitudes of adult learners (tertiary students, academic and administrative staff) to studying or improving language skills in various languages immersed in the ICT, in particular the options proposed by the language learning mobile apps. In order to gather adult learners’ views, quantitative research, based on an e-questionnaire, was carried out among 1028 participants from 6 EU countries within the international LanGuide project. The results of this research lead to a re-evaluation of some teaching approaches and suggest recommendations for teaching practitioners and materials developers.
