There has been a large volume of published studies describing the attitudes of teachers and students towards ict usage to study english; nevertheless, limited research has been conducted to examine the use of ict in terms of frequency of use, purposes, perceptions, and expectations among efl students. Thus, the purpose of the current study was to address this research problem. The research used a convenience sample of 149 english major students who were invited to respond to the questionnaire survey. The findings indicated that the participants spent more time using ict for private purposes than for english learning purposes. Most of them showed their positive attitudes towards ict use to study english and expected that ict should be used more frequently in the classroom in order to maximize language learning and teaching. Gaining an understanding of the way the learners employ ict for their non-educational purposes may help “shed light on how best to determine their educational uses” (fujimoto, 2012, p.165). Pedagogical implications were also given in this current inquiry.
