S2 15 Broadening Horizons with Technology in Teaching Language and Culture

Learning a language is far more than just learning the words and phrases. Behind the words are the cultural practices and context that add meaning and also help build deeper understanding. In this week's episode, we hear from Yuchen Liu about a new app being developed that allows people to learn through digital stories that add the cultural context to the language we learn.


Originally from China, a young linguistic entrepreneur and PhD candidate, Yuchen Lui shares her knowledge of creating a new App to broaden the horizons of using technology for teaching language and culture.

Learn how her App will help to fill gaps in the use of technology for linguistic and cultural competencies. Participate in her research and share your cultural background for Beta testing.
