The interactive format of the skill can help improve English vocabulary, listening, speaking, comprehension, and storytelling. To get started say "Alexa, open MyPedia", or simply "Alexa, I want to learn English".
It is designed to enhance the interest of students in the English language. The stories used in the skill can inspire them to be authors and be imaginative while writing in English.
