Om Lärka

Lärka - “LÄR språket via KorpusAnalys” - är Språkbankens ICALL plattform för språkinlärning avsedd i första hand för inlärning av svenska. Lärka började sin utveckling inom projektet “A System Architecture for Intelligent CALL”, men lever ett eget liv efter detta. Oftast, fungerar plattformen som prototyp för olika forskningsprojekt inom L2 svenska (t.ex https://spraakbanken.gu.se/eng/research/projects). 


Lärka är en modulär webbaserad övningsgenerator där befintliga annoterade resurser - korpusar och lexikon - aktivt återanvänds. Lärka är fritt tillgänglig för alla intresserade, inklusive språklärare och -inlärare.

Lärka finns i tre versioner:

  • Lärka Archive, the old version of Lärka. Not maintained and mostly non-functional.
  • Lärka, the current stable release of Lärka.
  • LärkaLabb, the experimental (possibly unstable) version of Lärka with all the newest features.
