Pronunciation

Try some of these websites for more pronunciation practice!

And some listening practice — listen and repeat?

The newest versions of Adobe’s Acrobat and (free) Acrobat Reader software can “read aloud” a PDF file. The intonation is a bit robotic, but overall, the pronunciation is good and the rhythm is surprisingly fluent. To try it, make sure you have the latest version of Reader, open a PDF, select VIEW –> READ ALOUD –> ACTIVATE READ ALOUD, and then either click in the document, or selection VIEW –> READ ALOUD –> READ THIS PAGE.

Word 2008 can save Word documents as PDF files, or you can use http://www.acrobat.com or other free online services.
