Abstract [en]

Technology is playing an increasingly important role in language education, and today most teachers of Chinese as a Foreign Language (CFL) probably embrace at least a few digital tools to enhance their work. In this workshop, an overview will first be presented of a range of digital tools currently used in CFL teaching and learning, such as Adobe Connect, Adobe Presenter, online language learning sites and apps on smart phones. The workshop then proceeds to a structured discussion on these tools; common practices, further possibilities, and potential problems will be considered, drawing partly on the participants’ own experiences.

Abstract [en]

Models of cross-language perception suggest that listeners’ native language plays a significant role in perceiving another language, and propose that listeners assimilate non-native speech sounds to similar sounds in their native language. In this study, the effect of native language on the perception of Mandarin tones by Swedish learners is examined. Swedish learners participated in an identification task, and their performance was analyzed in terms of accuracy percentages and error patterns. The ranking of difficulty level among the four lexical tones by Swedish listeners differs from that found among English native listeners in previous studies. The error patterns also reveal that Swedish listeners confuse Tone 1 and 2, Tone 3 and 4, and Tone 2 and 4, the first two pairs rarely being confused by English listeners. These findings may be explained with the assimilation account: Swedish learners assimilate Tone 3 and 4 to Swedish pitch accents, thus they exhibit a unique pattern when perceiving the tones in Mandarin.
