This research aims to investigate and understand high school students’ perspectives of using Smartphone use in learning English as a Foreign Language. In the era where learning can be done anytime everywhere, Smartphone become one of significant tools in education. Students can learn English from mobile applications and from open access courses available for them to access anytime everywhere. They can also seek online learning support around the world only by using their Smartphone. We were sending online survey to our potential respondents and gained 250 high school students from five high schools in Gorontalo, Indonesia who participated in this research. The results show that the majority of respondents (93%) have used Smartphone to learn English. Even though only a small number of respondents (17.82%) disagree that the presence of teacher or others are not significant anymore in learning English, more than half number of the respondents think otherwise. The Mobile applications that are often used in learning English are mostly referencing tools, such as Kamusku and Google translate. Most of the respondents are not familiar with applications that specifically designed for learning English as a foreign language. Keywords: EFL, smartphone, mobile application, online learning
