In our increasingly globalized world, speaking two languages has become something that is necessary. There are many practical and social benefits of being bilingual. The American Council of the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) has identified the benefits of language learning in three major areas: academic achievement, cognitive benefits and positive attitudes towards the languages learned and other cultures. Unlike two decades ago, students who study a second language are required to communicate with others. They are also expected to explore different disciplines on their target language, and to use their second language to participate in communities in this country and abroad” (Vadés et al., 2006).

Now more than ever, the need to teach a second language at school is evident. We know that students can acquire the language through comprehensible input and can learn it through repetition With technology being an integral part of our lives, we now have the tools to make the learning experience more meaningful and engaging for our students. This action study was conducted to determine the effects of digital tools on second language learning.
