	title        = {Developing an Open-Source Web-Based Exercise Generator for Swedish},
	abstract     = {This paper reports on the ongoing international project System architecture for
ICALL and the progress made by the Swedish partner. The Swedish team is developing a
web-based exercise generator reusing available annotated corpora and lexical resources.
Apart from the technical issues like implementation of the user interface and the
underlying processing machinery, a number of interesting pedagogical questions need
to be solved, e.g., adapting learner-oriented exercises to proficiency levels; selecting authentic examples of an appropriate difficulty level; automatically ranking corpus examples by their quality; providing feedback to the learner, and selecting vocabulary for training domain-specific, academic or general-purpose vocabulary. In this paper we describe what has been done so far, mention the exercise types that can be generated at
the moment as well as describe the tasks left for the future.

	abstract     = {In this paper, we present an on-going project whose overall aim is to develop open-source system architecture for supporting ICALL systems that will facilitate re-use of existing NLP tools and resources on a plug-and-play basis. We introduce the project, describe the approaches adopted by the two language teams, and present two applications being developed using the proposed architecture.},

	title        = {Developing a Swedish spelling game on an ICALL platform},
	abstract     = {In this project we developed web services on the ICALL platform Lärka for automatic generation of Swedish spelling exercises using Text-To-Speech (TTS) technology which allows L2 learners to train their spelling and listening individually performance based levels. The embedded avatar pronounces a random item of the desired level, which the user has to spell. Furthermore, the users have the possibility to train their own words for different linguistic levels. A result tracker containing a total and correct answer score keeps track of the language learner’s performance. In order to analyse typical spelling errors and provide better feedback, misspellings are collected in a database. The usability of the spelling exercises, concerning the different linguistic levels and the quality of speech, has been evaluated through a
questionnaire with 10 participants.},

	title        = {A flexible language learning platform based on language resources and web services. },
	abstract     = {We present Lärka, the language learning platform of Språkbanken (the Swedish Language Bank). It consists of an exercise generator which reuses resources available through Språkbanken: mainly Korp, the corpus infrastructure, and Karp, the lexical infrastructure.
Through Lärka we reach new user groups – students and teachers of Linguistics as well as second language learners and their teachers
– and this way bring Språkbanken's resources in a relevant format to them.
Lärka can therefore be viewed as a case of a real-life language resource evaluation with end users. In this article we describe Lärka's architecture, its user interface, and the five exercise types that have been released for users so far. The first user evaluation following in-class usage with students of linguistics, speech therapy and teacher candidates are presented. The outline of future work concludes the paper.},
