In this paper we describe the design and development of a system that facilitates location-based, situated and collaborative language learning incorporating the potential of Internet-based television and mobile phone. We present a number of requirements for technologies to support informal language learning based on our studies of adult language learners and the affordances of mobile devices to support learning. We describe TAMALLE+ (Television and Mobile phone Assisted Language Learning Environment), based on these requirements and describe its latest novel features that were developed. Finally, we discuss a multi-method evaluation technique to gauge usability, perceived usefulness and desirability of TAMALLE+ system.
