    M-ToPP Project

    I’m also a co-principal investigator in the M-ToPP (Mandarin Tone Perception and Production) project. In the collaborative work with Catherine Ryu, Xiaoshi Li and other researchers from MSU, we built a web-based game system to assess learners’ tone perception and production range to establish their personalized training goals. I am the leader of the perception strand of the project, which utilizes a learning app game, “Picky Birds”, to assess the validity of a theory-based hierarchy of difficulty in tone perception.
