We believe that with regard to the information technology applications in education, one student one computing device is the future and long-term trend. Many related studies on learning systems have been carried out, from applying the simplest functions of the remote controller to the very powerful capabilities of the tablet PC. Based on this research spectrum, this paper focuses on the improvement of the pocket electronic dictionary, which is a very popular personal device among students to facilitate English learning, to serve as an individual's learning device called English learning mobile device (ELMD). From using it simply to learn English, its functions are expanded to provide interactions in the classroom. At the same time taking into account the teachers and parents' participation to form a completed English learning scenario. Thus, a learning-centered, class-centered, and interactive-centered wireless technology enhanced language learning environment could be realized in ordinary classroom.
