Sounds is an app that helps you to improve your pronunciation skills in English

As much important as knowing how to write English words is knowing how to pronounce them. For this reason, you should get used to the phonetic dictionary. If you've never studied phonetics, you will have to make an additional effort to learn them. Anyway, you can do it from this app since there's a phonetic chart that reproduces each sound. What's more, from "More" tab you can see app instructions and other phonetic lessons.

Once you're familiar with it, you can start practicing by doing reading, writing or listening exercises. The more you practice, the better score you'll get on the Quiz.

Sounds app is set on a neat layout which is simple and really easy to use. Sound quality is good as well as voice recognition. A really useful app for improving your language skills.
