MULTIMODAL MANDARIN 

LEARNING TOOL

WHY LEARNING MANDARIN IS HARD

Mandarin is a tone-sensitive language. These four Mandarin tones distinguish a word’s meaning. 

Achieving accurate tonal variation and accent is a big challenge.

Being able to hear your mistakes is complicated.

Online language learning tools don’t currently offer an intuitive way. 

Achieving accurate tonal variation and accent is a big challenge.

Face-to-face contact with language teachers isn’t even enough.

The 'master' block leads the speech lesson by playing the ideal pronunciation as you move your finger along its top surface. Voice analysis software allows the 'mirror' block to listen to you and embody your tone in its surface form. You can actively self-correct your accent by physically comparing the master and mirror block shapes, feeling and hearing yourself relative to the ideal tone. This rich multimodal learning experience is based on how people directly relate vocal sounds to body movement.

 

​Voice Blox deconstructs and tracks your vocal frequencies using 'Fourier' analysis software. The tactile interface embodies your characteristic vocal frequency into a physical shape, enabling you to see and feel exactly how you sound.

 

MULTIMODAL LEARNING

Voice Blox takes a novel multisensorial approach to learning language - not currently found in physical classrooms nor online. Currently, people have only their ear to rely on in understanding their speech.

Conventional language lessons are also not truly interactive, and feedback is rare. Our tactile interface embodies a user's characteristic vocal frequency in a physical shape, enabling them to see, feel and hear exactly how they sound.
