dc.description.abstractDigital libraries have untapped potential for supporting language teaching and learning. This paper describes a new scheme for automating topic-specific language learning using a specially built digital library. Three exercises of different types are generated automatically from the library content: one that learners undertake individually, one in which learners collaborate in pairs, and one in which a group of learners compete. The system aims to foster content-based language learning, which greatly increases students’ motivation, fosters long-term recollection, and can be culturally situated in appropriate ways.en
