dc.description.abstract In the last decade, the Saudi Arabian government has made a concerted effort to enable its citizens to communicate in English effectively. The government mandated learning English on all educational levels. Acquiring a foreign language that is only introduced in the classroom challenges both learners and teachers. This study highlights the importance of students’ motivation and positive attitude in learning a foreign language, and the effectiveness of technology on Saudi female adults in learning English as a foreign language at the college level. The goal of this study is to inquire about the effects of technology on Saudi female students who lack the motivation to learn English. I demonstrate that technology can serve as a vehicle to motivate students, improve their learning skills and to introduce them to authentic experiences in the target culture both within and outside the classroom. This research will provide educators and higher education policy makers new insights into how to promote the usage of technology in teaching English as a foreign language in Saudi Arabia, and thus achieve the desired outcome of fluency.
