Full paper


The most important factor for a successful language learning platform is its high frequency of use among learners. Given its enormous user base and wide acceptance, social networking infrastructure contributes to a successful platform for language learning. Language learners on these platforms may acquire Chinese unconsciously. In this context, we have been developing the project “非學不可- Playful coercion in language acquisition”. The basic concept is a three-staged approach, alternating the conventional roles of learner and teacher along with three distinguished platforms, each corresponding to the learner's rate of progress. In this way the platforms provide a framework for student-centered language acquisition, and support lifelong learning for both teachers and students.
