This website was developed by CHEN, Hsueh Chu, Rebecca and her research team in The Hong Kong Institute of Education, aiming to help learners, teachers, and researchers at HKIEd as well as those from the outside community have a better understanding of the major pronunciation problems of Hong Kong and Mainland English learners.
A spoken corpus of Hong Kong and Mainland students has been established and analyzed in order to
(a) identify Hong Kong and Mainland university students¨ recurrent difficulties in English pronunciation learning,
(b) suggest possible remedies that may reduce or eliminate such difficulties.
Four parts of this website:
Part1. A Spoken Corpus of English learners in Hong Kong and Mainland China
Part 2. A Praat Beginner Manual
Part 3. Pronunciation Practice for Hong Kong and Mainland students
Part 4. Useful Resources for Pronunciation Learning
