Featured Video

In this video, Min-Min Liang, instructor of 21G.107 Chinese I (Streamlined), discusses how students use the digital tool Lingt to record their voices as they read Chinese texts outside of class; this allows her to routinely monitor their pronunciation.

Lingt is an online tool. [...] You can ask students to record their voices [and] and you can assign speaking lessons. It’s very convenient, because everyone has a computer. [Students] don’t need to go to the lab anymore.
