Learning with Texts – language learning software

Learning with Texts (LWT) is an open source tool for language learning, inspired by Stephen Krashen’s principles in Second Language Acquisition, Steve Kaufmann’s LingQ System and ideas from Khatzumoto (AJATT).

Read and listen, save and test words in context.

LWT offers a quick and efficient method of learning, with an intuitive graphical user interface that is easy to navigate.

Features include:

  • Define languages you want to learn.
  • Define the web dictionaries you want to use.
  • Define how sentences and words in the language will be split up.
  • Upload texts, and they are automatically split into sentences and words. Later re-parsing is possible.
  • Optional: Assign the URL of an mp3 audio file of the text (Dropbox, local server, …) in order to listen while reading the text.
  • Read the text while listening to the audio, and you see immediately the status of every word (unknown, learning, learned, well-known, ignored).
  • Click on words, and you use the external dictionaries to find out their meanings.
  • Save words or expressions (2..9 words) with optional romanization (for Asiatic languages), translations and example sentence, you change its status, you edit them whenever needed (like in LingQ).
  • Test your understanding of words and expressions within or without sentence context
    MCD (Massive-Context Cloze Deletion) testing, as proposed by Khatzumoto @ AJATT, built-in.
  • See your progress on the statistics page.
  • Export the words and expressions and use them in Anki or other programs.
  • Upload words and expressions into LWT (from LingQ or other sources, CSV/TSV) – they are immediately available in all texts.
