Language Learning Applications

This is the main page for the KDEEdu language applications.

Language learning applications include vocabulary trainers, pronunciation trainers, specialized dictionaries, and many more. This page is the main starting point for the community behind KDE edu. It contains discussions and information with a broader scope than only a single application.

Personas and Workflows

As the basis for our work we use a set of personas to discuss workflows and featuers for the language learning applications. The definitions are still not set in stone and may be revisited.


We recognize that the applications are not perfect, so at each time we are running or planning a number of projects to improve them. Here are links to the pages of the individual projects.

KVTML/ KVocDocument

KVTML (KDE Vocabulary Training Markup Language) is an XML based file format for storing language training data. This is the format that is used in many of the language applications, e.g., Parely, KWordquiz, KHangman.

KVocDocument and the related classes is a library that reads and writes kvtml files and provides a storage and manipulation API for applications. This library is part of libkdeedu.

Further Reading

Here follows some links to scientific results that we use in our applications.
