Abstract

Chinese has become the world’s strongest language, and that has also set off a learning trend. It is critical to know how to improve teaching methods and strategies to effectively help non-native speakers to overcome the language barrier. With the Internet’s and e-Learning’s popularity, learning technologies have led both learning activities and the environment into a multi-dimensional world. Recently a new trend has emerged, called context-aware technology, for developing a ubiquitous learning environment with features that emphasize real life learning situations and problem solving practices. This study has integrated situated learning strategies and context awareness technology to develop a basic Chinese language learning system for exchange students at a large university in northern Taiwan. The pilot test results show that these students are highly satisfied with the system and their learning attitude was also positive, while using this system.
