Topic: Cross-modal perceptual learning in learning a tonal language
Speaker: Dr. Xin Wang
Senior Lecturer, Department of Linguistics, Macquarie University

Some limited evidence in the literature shows that visual input can facilitate learning novel sound-to-meaning mappings that are crucial to learning a second language. However, the mechanisms by which visual information influences auditory learning are still unclear. In this talk, the speaker will discuss some recent/unpublished data tackling the issue that to what extent visual input (i.e., training in one domain) can lead to effect learning in another domain (i.e., tonal categories in speech). The results have important pedagogical implications of learning/teaching a tonal language.

After the talk, Dr. Leidy Castro-Meneses and Clarissa Montino will give a brief introductory session on Microsoft Teams along with some updates on Western Now.

This will be presented both on Zoom (via our meeting ID above) and in 3.G.55 as part of the back to campus plan
