    Description

    An excellent way of nurturing and encouraging a global outlook is by making learning a foreign language fun and rewarding to students. Through students are involved in a stimulating learning environment in class, when a student is alone at home, a feedback mechanism that compares the student's pronunciation to that of native speakers can provide some motivating reinforcement for the students. This project investigates the effects of such a built in feedback mechanism on the student's pronunciation for a group of beginning Chinese students in Australia.
