Easier Version:

Have you ever wished you could read someone’s mind? Well, scientists have made a breakthrough that brings us closer to that reality! They’ve developed an AI-based decoder that can translate brain activity into text. This means that for the first time, a person’s thoughts can be read without any surgery. How cool is that?

Harder Version:

A recent scientific breakthrough has led to the development of an AI-based decoder capable of translating brain activity into a continuous stream of text. This represents a significant advancement in the field of neuroscience, as it allows for non-invasive reading of a person's thoughts for the first time. The potential applications of this technology are vast and could include restoring speech in patients with communication difficulties due to stroke or motor neurone disease.

Click for Learning Tips

Here are some tips for getting the most out of this site.


Beginners: My strategy is to first read the translation while listening to the audio. Then I listen to each sentence individually. After that, I practice saying the vocabulary words out loud. Finally, I listen to the whole text again without reading the translation. I don't try to remember or understand everything. I just let the language sink in as I gain more exposure. (Videos about Comprehensible Input)


Intermediate Learners: To gain some speaking practice, try opening the translation in your native language and then translate it back into the language you're learning. If you encounter any difficulties, you can refer to the transcripts.


Although you may use these lessons for short, intense study sessions, it's important for intermediate learners to engage in extensive listening and reading with simple books, TV shows, and podcasts as soon as possible.
