Abstract

We introduce a new readability tutoring system, Read & Improve, a freely available online resource aimed at supporting learners of English and English Language Teaching (ELT) professionals by improving English learners’ reading proficiency. Using a combination of machine learning approaches and natural language processing techniques, Read & Improve detects learning needs of every student and makes sure no learner is left behind by identifying reading content at an appropriate level of readability and helping learners acquire new words through accessible dictionary definitions and content exploration functionality.
