For most English learners, reading English articles has always been a good way of improving the English proficiency. However, it is not easy to select interesting English articles of adequate difficulty vocabulary level. The purpose of this work is to devise a mechanism for selecting appropriate English articles for ESL learners in Taiwan. The proposed mechanism works by indicating whether a particular article, e.g., English news, is adequate in difficulty for the senior high school students in Taiwan.
