Glottovitalis, meaning the revitalization of tongue, is a language learning system that aims to preserve and promote Chinese dialects by increasing accessibility to a non-native audience. With the goal of simplifying the complex, Glottovitalis approaches language learning with an unconventional method: Pair English homonyms with a visual icon to create a directory of tones and sounds. The result is a memorable, interactive learning experience that entertains and enhances memory recall with visual aids.
