Abstract

First language interference is the influence of a first language in interpreting the second language. A number of generic games are already being used to teach various aspects of teaching English as a second language. This research focuses on the particular problem of first language interference in Arab speakers and using m-Learning to address this problem. This paper proposes a game-based mLearning architecture to help native Arab speakers trying to learn English as a second language in the context of higher education.
