The intervention (quasi-experimental condition) focused on the Telegram Apps for primary Japanese language learners with various professional backgrounds and do not yet know the Japanese language. Results showed a statistically significant correlation between growing motivation and interest in learning on learning outcomes and Japanese language skills. Students were more engaged in Japanese Language skills and more motivated to learn Japanese after a two-month intervention. The author concludes that the Telegram application as a mobile device is feasible and helpful in learning basic Japanese.
