Read foreign websites without having to use a dictionary! The WordChamp® web reader analyzes any website you specify, and will show pop-up definitions and audio clips for words that you point at.
Using the Web Reader Pop-Up Menu
When you roll your mouse over a word in the Web Reader, you will see a box containing possible translations for the word you are pointing at. There are frequently multiple translations, in which case you will have to choose the one that is most appropriate, given the context. If you click a translation, you will add that translation to a list of words you can practice.
In addition to the translations that we provide, you can also choose to view translations that have been entered by other users. These translations are usually correct, and are generally quite useful (especially in languages which are less well-covered by the "official" translations). However, due to the potential for abuse, you also have the option of hiding these translations.
If the correct translation is not present, or if you think that one of the translations is incorrect, you can edit the entries by clicking the "edit translations" link (you must be logged in to edit a translation).
Practice your pronunciation
You can hear the pronunciation of words by clicking on the speaker or practice your English pronunciation by clicking on the symbol to the right of the speaker.
