Recently, the prevalence of high-performance mobile devices and development of IT technologies, including augmented reality technology and location information service, etc. has led to the formation of an educational environment allowing learners to practice context learning theory ideally, subsequently contributing to active progress of relevant studies. Therefore, it is difficult to expect leaners to have an interest and a commitment since it cannot connect a lot of information coming through the perspective of the learner in a real-world environment with situated learning in real time. Accordingly, this paper proposes a intelligent English situated learning system that can practice situation context learning more reasonably using a location-based service and a recognition technology that automatically recognizes text information on street signboards that are easily accessible in everyday life, yet provide learners with a lot of information. The proposed system provides learners with English conversation learning contents that can be used in the business sector related to trade name recognized through text information on street signboards from images captured by cameras.
