Pronunciator: Language Learning Online

Overview of language learning available from Pronunciator through the State Library.

Language Options

Pronunciator is designed to provide a more personalized form of language learning, starting with the language pairs you choose for your learning. For these pairs, there's both a home language and a learning language:

  • Home language is the language you already speak, or your known language. It's used for translations, interface directions and menus, audio lessons, and often narrators and virtual coaches. You can also create personalized courses from most home languages.
  • Learning language is the focus or target of your language learning. Each learning language has an average of 10,000 instructional phrases.
