Briefly, explain about this project.
Using ultrasound technology to visualize the tongue’s shape and movement can help children with difficulty pronouncing “r” sounds.
When I found this project I think difficulty pronouncing “r” sounds is not only problem for children but also many international students are hard to pronounce “r” and other sounds. This being so, I can make exhibition for international tongue. The concept is people can their tongue shape when they pronounce sound. Many language book or other material for learning language shows tongue shape but we cannot see our tongue shape. I think the form of exhibition is data visualization and interactive things.
