"SpellSay EFL1" Android App
Saturday 3 November 2012
English pronunciation can be tricky, since a similar combination of letters can be pronounced differently.
This new app, called SpellSayEFL1 will let users learn or revise spelling, pronunciation and phonetics (IPA transcriptions) through 9 series of 8 words each. Users can also learn or revise vocabulary, thanks to the integrated dictionary at wordreference.com.
Here is how it works:
And here is an example.
By clicking on the words, users will hear them pronounced, and can play the series back ("Playback" button), or "Reset" to erase the previous playlist. IPA transcription is meant to help users identify the different sounds
Users can also look up for a translation thanks to the integrated wordreference.com dictionary.
* This app, like previous apps in this section, was made with App Inventor at http://beta.appinventor.mit.edu/.
* SpellSayEFL1 is adapted from Pr. Wolber’s "Xylophone" available here www.appinventor.org/xylophone
