The Center for Technology-Enhanced Language Learning at Purdue University
is pleased to announce the availability of Speak Everywhere, an online
speaking practice/assessment platform.


This service may be of interest to the following groups of people.

- Language Instructors can use the service in their courses to dramatically
increase speaking practice opportunities for their students. It can be used
to deliver oral tests as well.

- Language Laboratory Directors can use the system to provide an oral
practice/assessment platform for language instructors.

- Second Language Acquisition Researchers working on oral language
development can use the service to collect oral data: e.g. an interlanguage
pragmatics researcher can use a video clip as a cue to elicit an oral response.

- Corpus Linguists can use the service to collect large amounts of oral
productions to compile spoken language corpora.

- Language Textbook Authors/Publishers can use the service to create a
'speaking program' (as opposed to an audio program) to accompany their
textbooks. Pronunciation and phonetics textbooks should benefit greatly
from it.

For inquiries, email Dr. Atsushi Fukada (afukadapurdue.edu) or use the
Inquiry/Support link of the above-mentioned website.

I will be giving a one-hour presentation on the system on Sunday, November
20 at this year's ACTFL conference in Denver.
