Jo Verhoeven

University of Antwerp, Belgium

Ear Training On Line is a flexible educational package for teaching IPA transcription via the Internet. It explicitly aims to improve students' phonetic listening skills and to optimise the acquisition of the International Phonetic Alphabet as a tool for phonetic transcription. The package consists of a separate student and teacher interface. The student interface can be downloaded to any computer. The teacher interface is accessible via the Internet and provides teachers with information about students' progress.
