Responses to Ville: a virtual language teacher for Swedish

Preben Wik, Rebecca Hincks, Julia Hirschberg

A series of novel capabilities have been designed to extend the repertoire of Ville, a virtual language teacher for Swedish, created at the Centre for Speech technology at KTH. These capabilities were tested by twenty-seven language students at KTH. This paper reports on qualitative surveys and quantitative performance from these sessions which suggest some general lessons for automated language training.
