iLearn is a research project on language learning initiated by NHN Corp a leading Internet company in Korea. The objective of this project is to develop a stand-alone iPhone application for English training for Koreans using PocketSphinx which is a speech recognition system developed by CMU.
It’s the best time to get into the market because iPhone was released in Korea only 2 months ago. And iPhone has good mobility so that the users can study English anytime, anywhere. We will make full use of multimodal interfaces of an iPhone to provide users more immersive and intuitive learning experiences and have them more engaged. Also, we will use a speech recognition system to analyze user’s fluency in English.
Team members of iLearn are all Koreans. That is, we have better understanding of differences between English and Korean languages and cultures. Also, we know what Korean users want to learn. For these reasons, we strongly believe that we will make a success of this project.
