Pronunciation is easy to be ignored in advanced-level Chinese instruction, and so is the task of correcting pronunciation, tone and intonation in comprehensive courses. Based on the ubiquitous autonomous learning environment provided by BLCU’s “AI System for International Chinese Education”, an after-class summary reading-aloud activity was designed with the “listening and imitation →reading evaluation →immediate feedback →autonomous re-practice” approach for fourth-year undergraduate CSL students. The analysis of learning behavior data proves that this instructional activity is helpful for students' autonomous learning, personalized learning and reflective learning. The results of a questionnaire survey show that the effect for learning, the instructional design, the requirements of teachers and curriculum assessment are contributing factors for students to complete the learning activities, while the conditions of network equipment, review time after class, length and difficulty of reading-aloud content are the limiting factors. Based on the experiences of designing and implementing reading-aloud activity for advanced-level learners, this paper suggests further improvements for the reading-aloud activity (including learner motivation) and BLCU’s “AI System for International Chinese Education”.
