Tone Perfect: Multimodal Database for Mandarin Chinese




This video was contributed by Marco Seiferle-Valencia, Digital Scholarship Outreach Librarian at Michigan State University Libraries.



This video introduces Tone Perfect, a multimodal database for Mandarin Chinese developed at Michigan State University (MSU).

This tool, developed by Associate Professor Catherine Ryu in partnership with MSU Libraries, helps Mandarin language learners sharpen their tonal perception. Click the image below to watch:
