Abstract

Mobile training facilitates communication and information exchange without reference to stationary equipment. The purpose of the study is to find effective resources and mobile programs for use by Chinese undergraduate students in the study of Russian and English as foreign languages. The study was conducted in the Chinese universities of Guangzhou, Zhuhai and Wuhan. Observation, survey, survey and problem-oriented search showed that 95% of respondents prefer to use the mobile communication system WeChat (Weixin). Mobile programs and applications based on it—Xiumi, dictionaries Youdao and Qianyi, mini-program Ruclub, ‘Russian centre’—are widely used in the classroom and outside the classroom, in various forms of student and teaching activities. The results of the study showed that WeChat (Weixin) is the leading mobile platform for learning foreign languages in China. It is important to create a methodological classification of mobile applications used for teaching purposes on the WeChat platform.
