Abstract—Chinese has become the world’s strongest language, and that has also set off a learning trend. It is critical to know how to improve teaching methods and strategies to effectively help non-native speakers to overcome the language barrier. With the Internet’s and e-Learning’s popularity, learning technologies have led both learning activities and the environment into a multi-dimensional world. Recently a new trend has emerged, called context-aware technology, for developing a ubiquitous learning environment with features that emphasize real life learning situations and problem solving practices. This study has integrated situated learning strategies and context awareness technology to develop a basic Chinese language learning system for exchange students at a large university in northern Taiwan. The pilot test results show that these students are highly satisfied with the system and their learning attitude was also positive, while using this system.

Index Terms—Context awareness; situated learning; chinese language learning; RFID.
