Great for Pronunciation in English and Spanish

09 Jun

I LIKE this so far…A site where we can punch in a word in English or Spanish, whether obscure or mundane, and hear it pronounced.  It may need testing, but the fact that I could find the name of a fashionable home appliance just made my morning.  Here it is: http://www.PronounceHow.com  Tell me what you think of it.

    I’m glad you found my post “re-bloggable” (to maim our language further!) Please let me know how things go as you gain greater experience with this pronunciation site. Already my students and I have discovered that it will even process proper names, and we also think it would be a helpful improvement if the site included brief definitions with each word pronounced, instead of requiring users to cross-reference with their favorite online dictionary (I prefer Merriam-Webster’s Learners Dictionary so far for ESL learners. Any other suggestions are welcome.) Still a great tool, though. Thanks again!
