Abstract

Abstract This paper explores English language teachers’ perceptions of mobile applications and challenges in using them. The study uses data from 10 English languages teachers working in secondary schools and universities in Kazakhstan. Thematic analysis is employed. The findings suggest that teachers value availability and student engagement offered by mobile apps. The challenges of using mobile apps tend to be beyond teachers’ control and include internet issues or lack of equipment. Policy implications for teacher training and professional development are discussed.
