Abstract
Social Media Language Learning is a learning approach that concentrates on connecting interactive social media channels with language learners. Studies indicate that language learning is both inherently social and interactive so this method facilitates learning. Social Media Language Learning isn’t just about surfing the web, watching random videos or clicking interesting links—although some form of each of those is at least a logical component of the method. Using videos, newscasts and conversations in chat groups to observe the cultural aspects of a country where a target language is spoken can be a huge advantage when it comes to learning. This study first shares our case of using social media in English language teaching and secondly, explores students’ use of social media for English learning. Five sets of questions were set up in the survey. An online questionnaire was designed to capture the situation of students’ use of social media for English learning. Students were found to be using social media for English language learning. According to the scores students’ most popular tool for English learning is YouTube. They also used Facebook, Wikis and WhatsApp to learn English. No great difference of the mean scores between genders. The high frequencies of students using social media to share and obtain materials with each other to complete assignments. Educators are advised while endeavoring to promote knowledge sharing in terms of collaborative learning, simultaneously, to raise students’ awareness of academic integrity and also provide proper training.
