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.

      I'm an avid podcast listener and I love learning languages. However, it happened quite often to me that when I heard a good word or phrase through my favorite podcasts, I didn't have the time to grab my pen and write it down. This frustrated me a lot because those were usually good and useful words that I wanted to incorporate into my own learning. So one day while this happened to me again I felt enough was enough. I decided to make an app to solve this problem. 
      Fast forward a few months, PolyPro was born. I started to use it every day to improve my target languages (English & Swedish). A typical workflow for me looks like this:
      - Play my favorite podcast while I'm cooking, cleaning, etc
      - When I hear a good word or expression, I simply double-tap on my headphones to quickly save that conversation snippet into a short audio clip. Sometimes I save 1 or 2 clips for an episode, sometimes I might save 10 or 20!
      - Later when I have some time, I'll sit down and go through these audio clips. I can replay each audio clip to get familiar with the context. If the clip has a word that I want to dive deep into, I'll add a word to it, and it automatically links that new word to the audio clip, so that when I study it later I get to hear it in its original context. 
      This might sound like a rather unusual workflow, and I understand that it might not work for everyone, especially for those who have dedicated time to study. But for people like me who have little to no time for study after work, kids, and other countless family duties, this allows me to keep improving my languages without having dedicated study time. After all, learning to notice is the key to learning anything.
