Abstract

In this paper we present on-going research with the final aim of developing a Web-based collaborative language learning and instruction environment. Based on a long experience of research in the field of natural language processing and machine translation, we strive at making full use of the available natural language tools and resources for learning and teaching a foreign language. We have implemented a first prototype of a language learning environment for Japanese, which lets the student work with Japanese Web documents and offers nice visualizations of lexical, syntactic, and translation knowledge. The individual students can input their own suggestions for translations leading to an immediate update of their personal translation rule bases. Furthermore, the daunting task of translating a Japanese sentence can be greatly simplified by looking at a dynamically generated list of the most popular user translations.
