Web-Based Asynchronous Dictionary for Supporting EFL Learning

Pao-Yao Huang, Aaron Robert Fischer, and Shuchih Ernest Chang

Abstract—This paper explores a new method and system for English as a Foreign Language (EFL) learners to conveniently look up, via one request, tens (or even hundreds) of words identified and specified in e-texts, and our experiment results show that when compared with other types of dictionary use, this new method is more valuable and more efficient. What this new method can do for EFL learners is to make the task of looking up words simpler and more effective. In our project, additional features including vocabulary list and RSS feed content are implemented in the system to support mobile devices and enhance learning results.

Index Terms—Web 2.0, e-commerce, m-learning, web-feed, EFL, asynchronous learning.
