What is it about?

BabelSounds™ teaches the basic sounds of American English, French, Italian, Latin (Ecclesiastical & Germanic), and Russian! This powerful learning tool was created by diction teachers at top music conservatories specifically for classical singers, but can be used with great success by actors and foreign language learners. BabelSounds™ utilizes the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) to show phonetic spellings paired with demonstrations by native speakers. For each phonetic symbol there are two examples of words containing that sound/symbol, each listed with a phonetic guide and spoken demonstration.

App Store Description

BabelSounds™ teaches the basic sounds of American English, French, Italian, Latin (Ecclesiastical & Germanic), and Russian! This powerful learning tool was created by diction teachers at top music conservatories specifically for classical singers, but can be used with great success by actors and foreign language learners. BabelSounds™ utilizes the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) to show phonetic spellings paired with demonstrations by native speakers. For each phonetic symbol there are two examples of words containing that sound/symbol, each listed with a phonetic guide and spoken demonstration.
Select a language. Click on a sound/symbol or example as many times as you want! Listen carefully and repeat. It is like practice with a native speaker. You’ll master the sounds in no time!
BabelSounds™ uses the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) to indicate sounds phonetically. Unlike written language (orthography), each IPA symbol has only one sound. Many dictionaries and foreign language textbooks have adapted this standard system to indicate sounds. The IPA has become an indispensable tool in many fields including singing, acting, foreign language learning, linguistics, and speech pathology, among others.
The Free Download of BabelSounds™ includes American English. The languages below can be purchased in-app for $1.99 each or all five (5) for $7.99.
French
Italian
Latin – Ecclesiastical
