Learning a new language is fundamental in the globalized world we live in. English stands out as the most studied language nowadays, mostly because of its use in production of the most diverse media, like films, music, games, series, among others. The need to learn a new language, and especially the English language, has been driving the development of new learning methods. However, teaching methodologies remain standardized and embedded, not considering the individuality of each student in the learning process. A teaching methodology that is adequate to the individuality of each student demands methods capable of generating knowledge to the student through the use of topics that are of interest to them. In this way, this work proposes the development of a methodology for automatic generation of vocabulary exercises, in order to enable the generation of exercises from a document used as input. The study showed the feasibility of the application in automatic generation, reaching the precision of 100% for given scenarios.
