This study aimed to describe the students’ perceptions of the utilization of ICT in English learning. One hundred and thirty-four students of a private university in South Sumatera were involved as participants of this study. The questionnaires were administered to gain a portrait of students’ perceptions. Based on the findings, it was figured out that ICT promoted learning activity, maintained learning motivation, and increased learning achievements. However, ICT potentially hindered students’ focus and exposed students to data misuse. These contrary results lead to the discussion on how to maximize the positive impacts of ICT utilization and minimize its potential negative impacts. Several recommendations were formulated such as conducting correlational research to find out the relationship between ICT use and students’ English achievement or investigating the effects of ICT implementation on students’ English learning achievement through experimental design.
