There were fifteen blog sessions in total. During the experimental period, the voice and text blogging group posted both voice- and text-blog entries. The voice blogging group uploaded only voice-blog entries, while the text blogging group produced their text-blog entries.

Paired samples t-tests were run to compare pre- and post-test scores. One-way ANOVAs were employed to compare group differences. Content analysis method was applied for qualitative analysis of interview data. Findings revealed that participants in all groups improved oral proficiency. Particularly, the voice and text blogging group outperformed the voice blogging group and the control group. Interview results turned out to be positive.
