This demo shows the baseline version of REAP.PT, a tutoring system for vocabulary learning, which has been ported from the English version developed by CMU to European Portuguese. Students learn from authentic materials, on topics of their preference. A large number of linguistic resources and filtering tools have already been integrated into the ported version, which has been modified to also target oral comprehension.
