Computer Assisted Learning

Although speaking seems quite natural, learning foreign languages, or learning the mother tongue for people with language deficiencies, represents critical cognitive stages. Hence, many scientific activities have been devoted to these issues either from a production or a perception point of view. The general guiding principle with respect to computer assisted mother or foreign language learning is to combine modalities or to augment speech to make learning easier. Based upon an analysis of the learner’s production, automatic diagnoses can be considered. However, making a reliable diagnosis on each individual utterance is still a challenge, which is dependent on the precision and quality of the segmentation of the speech utterance into phones, and of the computed prosodic parameters.
