Lärka: an online platform where language learning meets natural language processing

Ildiko Pilan, David Alfter, Elena Volodina


We present Lärka, an Intelligent Computer Assisted Language Learning (ICALL) platform developed at Språkbanken. Lärka is an openly available web-based tool that builds on a variety of existing language resources such as corpora, lexical resources and language technology tools. This makes the platform flexible and a valuable source of additional learning material (e.g. via corpus-based exercises) and a support tool for both teachers and learners of Swedish.
