ISCA International Workshop on Speech and Language Technology in Education (SLaTE 2011)
We present an evaluation of CALL-SLT, a web-deployed
speech-enabled platform for improving fluency in a limited domain,
based on the translation game idea ofWang and Seneff.
The evaluation used 10 Chinese-speaking students of French,
who spent an average of about three hours each practising on a
set of five lessons covering elementary and intermediate grammar
topics in a restaurant domain. We found significant improvements
in student performance, measured both in terms of
their ability to be recognised correctly by the application and
according to written vocabulary and grammar tests.
