LiRRiL is an app based on scientific research that helps non-native English speakers who are experiencing problems differentiating L and R sounds. Researchers at Carnegie Melon University conducted an experiment on teaching native Japanese speakers differentiate between L and R sounds. Participants were played words with /l/r/ ambiguity, such as play pray, or long wrong, and asked to pick the word they heard. At first the participants were not shown whether their answers were correct or wrong, and they scored an average of 50%, which is no better than mere guessing.The scientists then discovered the secret to teaching their participants the ability to distinguish between L and R sounds. Straight after the participant chose whether he or she heard an L or R sound, they were shown whether their answer was correct or wrong. Only with this instant feedback is the brain able to develop the new ability of being able to differentiate between L and R sounds. Within an hour the participants were able to reach an average score of 80%! Since then more studies have confirmed these groundbreaking results AND show that being able to distinguish between L and R sounds even helps one to better pronounce them in the long term.
