It is possible to design an English vocabulary learning system using a text to speech (TTS) engine and a module which creates push alarms for new words or sentences at a specific time every day. The function of selecting new words and sentences and showing them to the user is a core technology in vocabulary learning systems, and it has a great effect on the systems’ learning effectiveness. This paper proposes a method for creating a system which selects words and sentences. The system collects English words and sentences via social networks, refines them so that they are in a form which is appropriate for user learning, and allows the user to learn words which are related to their current location and weather.
