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.
