Abstract

Learning a foreign language is often a fun but difficult task. A variety of commercial and non-commercial products focused on multimedia content claim to being the perfect vocabulary teacher. However, these products take neither care about the individual differences nor the emotional states that occur in the learning process. In fact, each individual learns in a different way and expresses a different range of emotions during that cognitive process. In this paper, we present an emotional retention agent for the learning of a foreign vocabulary language, namely Portuguese. This agent teaches the words by associating the best adapted hints to the learner's learning style. We present its architecture and discuss the results obtained in an experiment.
