Implemented on an already existing Intelligent Computer-Assisted Language Learning (ICALL) platform, the exercise has not only served as a test case for TTS in L2 environment, but has also shown a potential to train listening and orthographic skills, as well as has become a way of collecting learner-specific spelling errors into a database. Exercise generation re-uses well-annotated corpora, lexical resources, and text-to-speech technology with an accompanying talking head. }, booktitle = {Proceedings of the Ninth Workshop on Innovative Use of NLP for Building Educational Applications, June 4, 2015, Denver, Colorado, USA}, author = {Volodina, Elena and Pijetlovic, Dijana}, year = {2015}, ISBN = {978-1-941643-35-8}, pages = {107--117}, }
