Best Pronunciation Websites

Learning English Pronunciation can be a difficult task for many learners but it is something that can’t be left behind since a good pronunciation is crucial to be fully understood by other.

There are many resources to learn English pronunciation such as pronunciation apps, videos , books and Pronunciation websites

I think that you should incorporate them all if you want to improve your pronunciation.

As a teacher I have said during many classes that people might still understand long words such as dictionary and computer if you mispronounce a vowel, a diphthong or consonant.

We cannot affirm the same about short words such as; Boat, Toad, Pain, Cane, Sheet, Diss, this etc

The 3 Best Pronunciation Websites

I am honest when I say that most people prefer using apps these days but these sites can make a difference in your pronunciation efforts

#1 HowJsay

I totally like this HowJsay because of its minimalistic design and powerful features.

You just have to type a word and click search and you will be given an option to listen to the pronunciation.

Additional to the pronunciation of the word you are looking for, the website shows similar words that can also be checked.

If you are fan of pronunciation apps, you can download the apps available for android and IOS devices.

#2 Forvo

Forvo is another great pronunciation website where you can check the pronunciation of any word by typing it and then clicking search.

When you click search, you will have the chance to listen the pronunciation of the word that you are looking for and additional words which are similar to the typed word by you.

#3 Cambridge Online Dictionary

If people know me, they will tell you that the Cambridge Online Dictionary is my all time favorite because it covers pronunciation of the words professional by giving you the UK and US version of the word.

It also help you with the phonetic transcription of words so you can hear how the word is pronounced and what combination of sound make up the word.

#4 YouGlish

YouGlish uses YouTube to improve your English pronunciation. With more than 50M tracks, YouGlish gives you fast, unbiased answers about how English is spoken by real people and in context.

I think that being able to watch a video so you can listen to the pronunciation of a word in context make Youglish a unique tool.

In addition to that, you can watch videos and read the subtitles.

#5 How to Pronounce

How to Pronounce is another site that offers the opportunity to check how a word is pronounced in many different languages.

You will see similar functionalities in previous recommendation such as Forvo

#6 English Pronunciation Lab

English Pronunciation Lab is not a dictionary like the previous options. It is a blog to help people with some words which tend to be difficult for language learnes.

The administrator of the blog records herself pronouncing difficult words.

You can follow her blog or check her videos on Youtube
