Course Material

Training of pronunciation skills is performed with courses. A course is associated with a specific language, consists of different units and each unit is given by a sequence of phrases in different lengths. To ease the further explanation we defined a list of specific notions:

  • Language: Languages are only available in Artikulate if they are given by language specifications.
  • Course: A course is associated two one language and contains a list of units.
  • Unit: A unit consists of phrases that are "somehow" homogenous. E.g. those can be phrases spoken in a restaurant or phrases spoken at a conversation at the street by a tourist searching for the way.
  • Course Skeletons: A course skeleton forms the prototype of a course. This is, skeletons help to ease creation of courses in several languages as they state a set of units and phrases (in English) that then can be used as a blueprint to create a course in a new language. Updates of course skeletons can also be imported into courses that are created from a skeleton.
