Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In this paper, we develop and evaluate an English vocabulary learning web
system that uses the coil (Combination Of Initial Letters) learning method.
The coil method is a method that associates a single keyword with a set of
related English words for each of the letters that make up the keyword. The
problem with the coil method is that it is difficult to adjust the difficulty
level of the English words used in the generated questions, since the
questions are generated manually. Therefore, in this paper, we will tackle
the automatic generation of questions using a computer, and provide an
environment where learners can study the generated questions through a web
system. The system shows an image of each English word and allows the learner
to listen to its pronunciation. In addition, we evaluated the degree of
retention by the score of the English vocabulary test in the case of using
the coil learning method of the web system developed in this study and in the
case of using the English vocabulary book. As a result, it was found that the
learning effect was higher when the students studied with the our developed
web system than when they studied with the English vocabulary book. The
results of the questionnaire survey conducted on the users who used the
developed web system showed that many users felt that the system was easy to
