It's not my site but...

I believe you all might find it useful. WordBrewery is a new website that pulls sentences from the news. They are then categorized by level and topic. There's also a search bar so you can find specific words in context. Audio, translation, and the source article are included.

It's also possible to save words and sentences to lists, and export these to Anki.

It's currently free to use. Like every other app, all you need to do is register.

Personally...

I use it for German, as it doesn't have Hindi yet. But it's rather nice, because it's hard to find advanced materials for many languages I'm interested in, such as Modern Greek and Arabic. I use it as a warm up and to find context to words. I'm also considering using Anki, so if I decide to, I'll start exporting all my lists.

Current Languages:

  • Arabic
  • Spanish
  • French
  • Italian
  • Portuguese
  • English
  • Swedish
  • Russian
  • Serbian
  • Japanese
  • Modern Greek
  • Polish
  • Hungarian
  • Ukrainian
  • Norwegian 
  • Korean 
  • Chinese
  • German

Wow! A huge number of languages!

That's true! I was very excited to see that they have Modern Greek. A few years ago I could barely find anything for it. Over time I assume they will continue adding languages.

This website looks indeed promising :) I will work on it to improve in Spanish. I wonder is it totally free ?

Their Spanish has native audio, I think, for the beginner levels. 

They just released the premium subscription, so you have to pay to get access to all the features. But even the free package is nice if you want to try it out. 
I'm considering buying the subscription, honestly, because I study more than one language and they said the subscription money is going towards providing more services.

Update:

WordBrewery is looking for learners to help report site bugs and give feedback. They are willing to offer a 1-month free premium subscription for those who are interested in helping out. As WB is a start-up and doesn't have funding, it is highly dependent on its users. The benefit being that WB generally listens to its users and reads every message in an effort to improve. ^_^ 

Please let me know if you are interested in helping out.

      Hi everyone! I'm native Finnish speaker, currently studying German, Swedish, Japanese and French. I'm 24 years old and live in Finland. I became interested in different languages, because of my job. I'm studying to become classical vocal teacher and I'm going to graduate next month. As a classical singer I've been performing songs in German, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Swedish, Finnish and English.

      Right now I wish to focuse my language studies to German, because it's the most important language for my career.

      Nice to meet you!
