Abstract

Vocabulary acquisition is an important element of foreign language learning. Research on memory suggests that vocabulary can be learned most efficiently by elaboratively rehearsing each word at spaced intervals. We propose that push media – such as short email and text messages sent to student's mobile phones - can encourage study at regular intervals. We developed a series of concise, informal mini lessons and sent students three each day. Students reported that the push media and friendly writing style were enjoyable and promoted regular study.
