DIT's Role in FluenCi

DIT conceived the idea behind the project and, based on its experience in national and international collaborative research, will lead the FluenCi project. With over 8 yrs experience in language technology research, its chief task will be to use its skills in language teaching, speech technologies and software development to construct audio assets for the structured learning materials.

DIT leads 3 workpackages:

WP1 Management: including the financial management of the project

WP3 Specification+Design: DIT will concentrate on the production of learning materials, mindful of its main language research vision: to prepare learners to cope with native-to-native spoken language.

WP4 Asset Production: DIT has considerable experience in the production of speech technologies and is currently building a state-of-the-art audio facility, which will be made available to the FluenCi project. It will also assess the possibility of producing a mobile iTouch version for the school target group.
