Learners can listen to music and read the synchronous lyrics using this mobile music playing application. The proposed system will make questions that correspond to lyrics for EFL (English as Foreign Language) learners studying. This approach focuses on retrieving verb-noun collocations and making appropriate questions automatically. BNC (British National Corpus) has been chosen to calculate mutual information to get the correct collocations, and the synset of Word Net has been used to make wrong candidates which people often make mistakes for using collocations. Therefore the learner can study anytime, anywhere by using mobile devices, proposed mobile application, lyrics reading and music listening.
