Following Kiernan and Aizawa [1], and Thornton and Houser [2] among others, I have in a separate paper [3 J explored the use of cell phones and SMS in the classroom as a means of exploiting what really constitutes an immediately available form of ubiquitous computing, to facilitate second language acquisition. In order to gain information of Korean college students prior to conducting research specifically addressing their language learning strategies used in accessing online resources [4], [5], I conducted a preliminary survey, the results of which are presented here. I surveyed their use of cell phones, electronic dictionaries, SMS, Email, Computers and the Internet, investigating their use of their target second language of English (L2), and questioning whether they used such resources for L2 learning, and to what extent they did so in the target L2 language of English. It is intended to refine and repeat this survey in forthcoming semesters.
