Learning a language requires explicit learning of vocabulary and language rules. This can be supported by mobile learning. This paper describes a mobile based Amharic language learning tool for beginners. The main emphasis is to teach beginners the basic alphabets, words and common conversation they might come across. To achieve this goal, our main effort is based on three aspects: designing and delivering alphabets, words and conversion lessons, giving exercises for the lessons, and allowing the user to keep track of his/her profile.
