In Africa, recent improvements in wireless communication infrastructure and the widespread use of mobile phones have helped the growing population to gain access to the Internet and smartphone applications. These improvements have enabled students, business men, employees and companies to participate in the global online community.
Against this background, mobile phones are used for many everyday situations including educational applications for personal development. The devices are perfectly adapted to the needs of students in emerging markets and countries. For students of English or French who wish to improve their vocabulary and grammar, smart phones represent a very cost-effective solution. Their popularity is on the increase for English courses, from South Africa and Tanzania to Nigeria and Ghana. Similarly, French and Arabic are useful if you live in (or work with) the French and Arabic speaking communities centred in countries in the Greater Maghreb area of northwest Africa.
Students and employees in Africa and emerging markets can now choose and download a smartphone app to complement their studies in various subjects at school, college or university as well as private lessons or tuition. A mobile application is ideal for those trying out new words and sentences, without typical concerns about feeling self-conscious or making mistakes in front of other class members. Vocabulary includes various topics such as home, work, travel, food, families, social expressions and other important language areas. Many students who learn in this way find that with their enhanced knowledge and fluency, their job prospects improve.
