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 lesson. Langofone then randomly selects one phrase and five possible translations. 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 phrase. If you make the wrong choice, Langofone tells you: “Sorry, wrong answer” and gives you the correct translation and then continues with a new phrase. All incorrect answers will be presented to you until you get them right.
Translate translates words and phrases from 12 language to 12 languages. Translate is based on Google Translate.
