Best e-reader for learning?

Hi there

Im looking to buy a new e-reader but can't really decide what to chose. I want to improve my english more and wonder what reader has the best built in "learnining tools"?

A good built in dictionary (if there are, swedish - english)/Funny quiz/learning pronunciation

What are your tips?

Some Kindle Fire tablets have a "Text-to-Speech" (read aloud) option as shown here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2a9GoQe8QY

Also, the Google Play Books app can read text aloud: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bj9LSX1_53E

Decades ago when I drove a taxi while I was going to school I needed to learn enough Spanish to be able to respond to Spanish Speaking Driver requests, so I found comic books in Spanish and using a dictionary to help, I read them. The pictures are a huge aid to context ahd make the meaning of some words obvious and they're memory joggers for other words.

I also learned English this way when I was about 4. I read the funny pages in the paper and asked the meaning of words I didn't know. I pestered my family mercilessly but by the time I entered the first grade I'd already read Tarzan novels and Hardy Boys novels that my dad had in the attic.

I agree that Kindle's Word Wise feature is worth looking into but I'd also look into using comics to help you.

Perhaps the vocabulary builder feature on the Paperwhite would be useful? Assuming that feature is still around.
