WordNews: Learning a Second Language from Reading News.

Learning a new language from language learning websites or formally is time consuming. WordNews makes language learning efficient and attractive by interleaving language learning with the daily activity of online news reading, which has become a leading platform for consuming news. Details about the features of the initial prototype can be viewed here and a demo video of the extension can be viewed below.

Our WordNews project was funded by VaSCo (Validating Startup Concept) award (S$10,000) from National University of Singapore (2015-2016)!
