Abstract

We present a detailed analysis on the difficulties a language learner usually encounters when dealing with a foreign language and with dictionary use. Starting from this analysis we describe the ELDIT dictionary, a dictionary which has been especially developed to help language learners with such problems by exploiting multimedia, hypermedia and adaptation technologies. An evaluation has been carried out which shows that, in fact, users are able to understand the information we want to transmit and that they enjoy working with the system.
