Project by

Project Year 
2012
Idiomology leverages multimedia for language learning. With a focus on idioms and language usage, it aims to support learners in entering communities of discourse. The tool presents interactive conversation scenarios, offering opportunities to practice responding to idiomatic phrases and observe its usage in various contexts. By employing a crowdsourcing model, the platform invites individuals to submit their own multimedia creations and contribute to the meaning making process. The tool is a valuable resource for global audiences, advancing the ability of people to connect with one another from across the world through language.
