- Ed Tech Review
Saundz’s approach to English phonology makes it easy for foreign students to learn the sounds of American English and improve pronunciation.
Our virtual assistant Simone lets you hear correct pronunciation of 40 American English sounds and over 400+ words, as well as to see how you should move your vocal organs to create sounds.
Detailed explanations on how to produce each sound and recognize it in spelling.
You can choose among 4 professionally-recorded native speakers to compare your pronunciation to.
LISTEN, WATCH, RECORD, COMPARE.
In every lesson you can first listen and watch Simone pronouncing sounds and words, and then record your voice and compare it to native speakers.
Saundz currently offers instructions in English, Mexican Spanish, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Russian and Serbian.
