The globalisation of the economic forces and the acceleration of technological change have made knowledge-based activities and the use of new technologies a priority issue for the growth of a country. Consequently, the new mobile technologies play a vital role in our activities. We consider that English has a bigger distribution than all other spoken languages and that it is an official language in 52 countries as well as in many other small countries and territories. In addition, 1/4 to 1/3 of the people in the world understand and speak English to some degree. Then, the key to success in the world is the combination of “new technologies” and the “English language”. Considering that the mobile telephony has had a boom in the last years and that a lot of people already have a mobile telephones, we have developed an integral system that combines the mobile phone and a web site for the learning of the English language.
