Abstract:
In the modern educational landscape, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has become a key tool in the field of education, especially for English language learning. Therefore incorporating ICT into English learning is gradually becoming popular among EFL students to hone their English language learning. This study aims to investigate the EFL students’ perceptions of the use of ICT in English language learning at a private university in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam. The research design is based on a sequential explanatory mixed methods design, including quantitative data through direct surveys using questionnaires and qualitative data through interviews. Quantitative data was collected through a questionnaire consisting of 22 closed-ended questions with 180 respondents. The findings indicated that the participants had positive attitudes toward the use of ICT in their English language learning.
Keywords: EFL students, perceptions, ICT use, benefits, activities.
