Nowadays, it is hard for teachers to capture students' attention with non-digital tools like boards and course books. Modern learners, who were born as digital natives, have a tendency to play with their phones or laptops when they lose interest in the lessons. A way to solve this problem is to incorporate the use of technology in the teaching and learning process. This research focuses on the use of the teaching app called "Socrative" to organize classroom activities and get instant feedback from students. The study was conducted during 12 weeks among 20 first-year students of University of Engineering and Technology, Vietnam National University, Hanoi. The results were obtained from the teacher's classroom observation and students' feedback on the app. The research points out that Socrative is useful for teaching English since it livens the class's atmosphere and motivates students to involve themselves more in the lessons.
