For English learners, it is difficult to learn English vocabulary. In my case, it is very effective to learn words with the use case of the words. I used to make several English vocabulary quizzes with example sentences, but the making process is very tedious and time-consuming. I wish that I had the tool to make English vocabulary quizzes easily, but I could not find the app which I want to have. Therefore, I decided to make the app by myself. This project is also my capstone project at my university.
What it does
Fetch English meaning and example sentence. I used an unofficial Google Dictionary API and scrape WORDINASENTECE.com
How I built it
The frontend is made by React.js. The complete app should be on MERN stack.
Challenges I ran into
I have never built any web apps by React.js, so everything is challenging for me.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I finished making the fetch function and displayed the word meanings.
What I learned
How to use React.js
What's next for English Word Learning Tool
Complete application this late April. Store data on MongoDB and generate quizzes from the stored data.
