Youglish

Youglish is an online tool designed to help its users improve their pronunciation in their target language (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese). Simply enter the word or phrase which you would like to pronounce into the search bar and Youglish will provide you with hundreds of videos in which your desired word is said in context. It also provides you with a phonetic breakdown of the word in question. It is also a great tool to expand your knowledge of vocabulary in context. With languages such as English, Portuguese, Chinese and French, you can even choose the accent which you would like to hear, such as American or English.

Evaluation: Very useful resource for those looking to work on their pronunciation or the pronunciation of their students. Youglish not only provides examples of how a word is pronounced but acts as a dictionary also. Click on any word in the sentence being said in the video and Youglish will give you its definition, examples of its use in a sentence and synonyms.

Cost: Free, with registration
