Online ELL Pronunciation Tool

I was just made aware of a new link that was recently made available that offers a free ELL pronunciation resource. It shows an animated flash video of how to pronounce the sounds of English. It also shows a video of the front view of a human mouth pronouncing each sound. Students can record themselves saying the sound, and then compare their pronunciation to the native English speaker's. The link also includes an animation of correct letter formation for the alphabet letters. It's a great resource to use for focused practice of the segmentals (sounds) of English. This tool is especially helpful for English Language Learners. The pronunciation tool is available here on software format, or in mobile app form here. It's a great pronunciation resource that benefits both students and teachers.


  1. Doesn't look like its free. offers 14 day free trial.

    1. Tamara, you are correct. The app is now available in mobile app form aside from the 14-day software trial. You can learn more about the app here: http://www.readinghorizons.com/reading-intervention-program/mobile-applications/pronunciation-tool.
