This study investigated the effect of an authentic practice: using smartphones in L2 on vocabulary acquisition and learning motivation. Participants who had changed their smartphone system language to English and used them in L2 for a one-week period were found to improve their vocabulary knowledge and learning motivation, which indicated the potential of using smartphones in L2 as an effective language learning approach.
