Evaluation of Versatile English Learning System Using Webpages as Learning Materials

Yuki Oikawa, Kozo Mizutani, and Masayuki Arai
Abstract—In Japan, there is a strong demand for English language instruction not only from students, but also from working adults. However, the nation has few systems that have functions for improving English language skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) that are both inexpensive and simple to operate. In an effort to help resolve this problem, we developed a versatile English learning system that uses webpages as learning materials. The system has the following characteristics: it creates Japanese versions of webpages translated from English, it can determine a user’s English skill level, it is capable of speaking and listening interactions, it does not require a subscription fee, and it is easy to operate. This paper reports on the results of an evaluation of our system.

Index Terms—English learning system, multi-functionality, webpage.
