DescriptionWelcome to Langofone, your mobile language tutor!
With Langofone you can learn any language directly from your iPhone. Langofone enables you to practice pronunciation, as well as listening and reading comprehension. Langofone is perfect for the active traveler who would like to make a good first impression or for anybody who would like to “brush up” on their language skills, or simply learn a new language.
One great advantage with Langofone is that all words and phrases are recorded by a native speaking person. This is crucial since pronunciation is very important when learning a new language. Constant repetition is needed for efficient language learning and that is why we decided to build this application for iPhones, so that it always will be available.
Langofone consists of three features:
You start by selecting a phrase. Listen to the phrase and repeat it in order to learn how to pronounce it. You can listen to the phrase an unlimited number of times by pressing the PLAY button. When you believe that you know how to pronounce it, you can record your pronunciation by pressing the RECORD button. When you have recorded a phrase you can listen to the original recording as well as your own. You can also analyze your recording by pressing the Analyze button. We will then compare your recording with the original recording and give you feedback consisting of four individual scores and a weighted average.
You start by choosing a package. Langofone then randomly selects one phrase in audio format and five possible translations of which one is correct. You are allowed to listen to the audio file as many times as you wish. When you believe that you know what the audio file means, you make your selection. If you choose the correct translation, Langofone will tell you:
“Good answer!” and continues with a new audio file and new optional translations to choose from. If you make the wrong choice, Langofone tells you: “Sorry, wrong answer” and gives you the correct translation and then continues with a new audio file and new translations.
Langofone stores all incorrect answers in an "incorrect answer folder" and automatically chooses phrases from this folder more often so that you will have a better chance of learning these phrases.
Translate translates words and phrases from 12 language to 12 languages. Translate is based on Google Translate.
