Abstract
The author reports on experiments aiming to instrumentally capture the deviations on the segmental and prosodic level observed with L2 learners. An on-going project at Beuth University is dedicated to the development of a computer-assisted pronunciation training system for German learners of Mandarin. Another recent study looked at Chinese and Russian learners of German.
