And the best source of all… you! This is a flexible tool for whatever interests you, whether it’s science fiction, current affairs, technology blogs, or Harry Potter. You can read any website or upload any plain text or epub text to your private account on Readlang.

Get words to stick

While you read, Readlang stores every word and phrase you translate as a flashcard to help you learn. These flashcards use a spaced repetition algorithm to schedule words at intervals which optimize the rate of vocabulary acquisition. It operates similar to the popular open source app Anki, and in fact you can export your list of words to study in Anki if you prefer.

If you decide to use Readlang’s flashcard system instead of Anki’s you’ll get one key benefit. Your words will be prioritized based on their frequency. This further optimizes the learning process by teaching you the most useful words in the language first.

So… what’s this going to cost me?

Not much, in fact everything is free with generous limits, or unlimited usage is only $5 / month or $48 / year.
