“This is a fantastic learning tool for really getting students to work on the specific sounds in words as well as taking into account stress and intonation. The visualisation is a useful way to illustrate areas that need more attention and can be practised again and again. As an ESL teacher, I have recommended it to all my students so they can work on their pronunciation skills at home and have used it in class on many occasions.” Anna D, Bristol, UK

Say It offers large American and British English dictionaries - they can take a few minutes to download, depending on your WIFI access.

Great app, amazing support.

For me the app is an incredible resource. It’s currently one of my top apps and my pronunciation has improved dramatically since I started using it. The customer service is outstanding. I had a problem and they produced a bespoke solution to solve it. I was very impressed. They are really working hard to satisfy and support their customer base. I fully recommend without reservations.

Great tool for practising English pronunciation

I specialise in teaching English pronunciation and vocal clarity. This is a really useful tool for me. It’s amazing what students can reproduce when they can see the sound wave, the stressed syllable, listen, and then try reproducing themselves. Students can make their own word lists (with the stars) and practise the words they need most for their work, studies etc.

Very useful!

This app is great, very intuitive and easy to use. The free version is good but the paid version has so many more options! My international friends found this app very useful when coming over to study so I would recommend 100%
