Abstract, a website created by Thomas David Kehoe in January 2017, is intended to train second language learners in speech perception, segmentation, pronunciation, and diglossia, but the primary target is second language learners with auditory processing disorders, those who cannot "pick up a language by ear". The author argues that if the website can help learners with auditory processing disorders, then all second language learners will find the website helpful. Kehoe claims that the website primarily aims to improve the ability to hear a second language. The website is free and can be used on any device (e.g., computer, tablet, cell phone) with internet access and any type of software. According to the author, the website is still being developed, which needs to be taken into consideration when evaluating this website.
