The French Pronunciation App from the Mobile Language Learning Group (MOBLL) at the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD).
The MOBLL Group at UMD seeks to harness the vast potential of mobile computing for language learning inside and outside the classroom. Our work involves students directly, and is conducted in such a way as to produce innovative research on the intersection of second language learning, digital technology and cultural studies. The UMD MOBLL French Pronunciation App was designed and built through the collaboration of students and faculty at the University of Minnesota Duluth.
According to research on L2 pronunciation, just getting the speaker to hear their errors is 80% of the work. This app was designed to address that 80%. While there are numerous versions of acceptable French, we have opted for the French that is taught in most language programs. We will add more varieties as time permits.
This version has been re-built for use with iOS 11. All functionality from the previous version remains the same.
