AGnovel aims to create and put to use an innovative approach to foreign language   learning by developing a new type of graphic novel that can be used on new mobile touchscreen devices like tablets. The goal is to take advantage of possibilities that new technology offers and expand the usefulness of graphic novels in language learning. The project AGnovel will create a blueprint and  a showcase for an advanced interactive graphic novel that is enhanced with audio from native speakers. Learners will be motivated through a compelling story, which is easy to read and understand thanks to the illustrations that tell the story along with the text. The interactive elements will let the learner interact with the story in a way that lets him apply the learned content. This is a major difference from traditional graphic novels which only allow passive learning.
