ReadLang

Principal function(s): Bookmarking Flashcard Translation tool

An e-reader made specifically for language learning. It allows you to import books, articles and webpages, translate and save new words and memorize them later. You can add it as an extension to your browser or just as a bookmark and directly import content from the web. It also schedules your learning and allows you to spend the most time on words that you find more difficult.

Evaluation: ReadLang uses Google Translate to translate words and phrases instantly on their original site when you click on them. You can also import the article over to Readlang. When you do that, and then click on words, the program saves the words in a database that you can refer back to later, and even creates a set of flashcards for you to practice with; you can also upload the flashcards to Anki. You can upload your own pdf or epub files and get them translated as well.

Cost: Free with registration + Paid premium plans

Write & Improve (Tool to improve your writing in English)

Write & Improve is a free online tool developed by the University of Cambridge to help English language learners improve their writing skills. Students choose their level and then receive a selection of writing tasks that match that level. Once the task has been submitted, the tool automatically assigns an appropriate grade and also gives feedback on the writing, which students can incorporate into the original text. Students can also create their own writing assignments.... View details
