Abstract

In this study, an online English learning environment with a user-based collaborative filtering system is developed, which enables learners to learn English while expanding their interests. In particular, the online learning environment recommends English news articles based on information of "other users who have interests similar to a learner," and the learner learns English from these recommended articles. This system provides an environment in which students can read a wide range of topics in English and also yields good study results.
