Why use this read-aloud tool?

This tool's only aim is to encourage you to speak aloud, in order to familiarise yourself with the language you wish to speak.
By listening to yourself speak, you will speed up your rate of learning spectacularly.

On the other hand, we do not advise you to use it thinking that it will allow you to acquire perfect pronunciation, only a human teacher can truly help you to achieve this.

We have added an extra little service to make this tool even more enjoyable, clicking on the words provides you with automatic translations along with the sound. These translations, when correct, can help you to understand the meaning of words in isolation, but do not in any way claim to provide the overall meaning of a sentence. This translation service is only the Beta version of a tool that we intend to offer in the near future.

Please note: this service only works with the CHROME browser, which you can download by clicking on the following link: Google Chrome.
