Please note that the app will no longer be developed and supported. Instead we recommend to migrate to "Listen to Speak" which is still free, more functional, and has no ads.

Are you learning a foreign language and have difficulties understanding the native speakers? Our software will transform your mobile device into a perfect foreign language teacher.

It uses an advanced learning technique where short language patterns are read, understood, and pronounced in sequence. The application then analyzes your pronunciation, telling you how well you have done.

• You can learn practically ANY language, even several at the same time
• You can PRACTICE whenever you have some time for it, even on the GO
• You can install FREELY additional themes (English, Spanish, French, German, and others soon) using menu «Install» on the tab «Themes»


You will find more details about how to organize your own repository, create custom learning themes, and other technical information here:

Important notes:
• Quality of the reference speech depends on the quality of the voice output engines installed on your device. If you have Android 2.2 or later you can also install third-party engines (e.g., SVOX, Loquendo, IVONA, and many others) and might get a significantly better speech quality.
• If you use functions based on the internet services (translation and speech recognition) please keep in mind that their quality strongly depends on the connection speed.
