VinciLingua Project

Portrait of Leonard da Vinci, namesake of the site

VinciLingua is a set of teaching and learning materials based on the concepts of exploration and generation. Unlike typical approaches based on canned (and therefore static) teaching materials, in this approach, questions and answers are generated in real time from a grammar. The materials behind VinciLingua were developed in the School of Computing at Queen's University.

This site contains materials of three sorts:

  1. interactive language exercises for a variety of languages
  2. online textbooks
  3. 'toys' showing the use of web technologies and generation for teaching of languages and other things

They may be accessed by clicking on the appropriate button at the bottom of this page.
