This study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of using Mobile Learning Application in developing eleventh graders' English grammar learning and motivation for English. To achieve this aim, the researcher adopted the experimental approach and employed a sample consisting of (70) EFL male learners studying at Al-Haj Mohammed Al-Najar Secondary School for Boys in Khanyounis, the Gaza Strip. The researcher randomly chose two eleventh grade classes out of the five classes in the school and randomly assigned one class consisting of (35) students as an experimental group and the other consisting of (35) students as a control group. The traditional method was used in teaching the control group, while the Mobile Learning Application was used with the experimental one in the first term of the school year (2016-2017). As a main tool of the study, the researcher designed and validated an achievement test consisting of four domains including (48) items to be used as a pre- and posttest. When used as a pretest, the achievement test was meant to prove groups' equivalence. Besides, it was used as a posttest to measure any possible differences between the two groups. In addition, the researcher used a motivation scale (pre & post) to determine the students' motivation for English language. The collected data were analyzed and treated statistically using T-test to identify the direction of the effectiveness. Furthermore, the effect size equation was used to measure the effect size of Mobile Learning Application on the experimental group in each scope of the test. The findings of the study revealed that there were statistically significant differences in learning English grammar between both groups in favor of the experimental group. This could be attributed to using Mobile Learning Application in teaching the experimental group. Furthermore, there were statistically significant differences in favor of the experimental group in the post application of the motivation scale, which could be attributed to the use of Mobile Learning. Based upon the previous findings, the study recommended the necessity of implementing Mobile Learning Applications in teaching and learning English grammar to bring about better outcomes in students’ achievement. Also, the researcher suggested that further research should be conducted concerning the effectiveness of using Mobile Learning Applications on different English language skills and other school subjects as well.
