State-of-the-art virtual animation
SAUNDZ's proprietary high-def movie quality video animnations, nicknamed Simone, shows you exactly how to work your vocal organs to produce English sounds and words. Simone is 100% photo-realistic and she shows you how to position your mouth, lips, tongue and teeth to accurately pronounce a sound or word. Simone's movements allow you to see and hear the exact difference between the English sound, and a similar sound that might appear in your native language. Simone also has slow-motion mode that allows you to watch frame-by-frame how her vocal organs move.
SAUNDZ, unlike many competitive programs, presents a structured curriculum that uses a building block approach to teach you the 40 sounds of American English (16 vowel and 24 consonant). As you learn new vowel and consonant sounds, they are combined to form words with sounds you have been previously taught. SAUNDZ introduces groups of words that differ in just a single sound, providing the opportunity to practice and master the subtle differences between particular sounds. In the end, you know how to properly pronounce your English vocabulary, which you learned in school.
Hear it - See it - Record it - Compare it
Have you ever had a situation where your teacher corrected your pronunciation multiple times and you were still unable to understand what you are doing wrong? With SAUNDZ, you record your own attempt at pronouncing a sound or word and compare it against a recording of a native speaker's pronunciation. When you hear yourself speaking, you sound different than when you hear a recording of your voice – this difference is important in trying to learn how to pronounce a foreign sound or word correctly. With SAUNDZ record and compare feature you can hear the subtle differences between sounds and make the necessary changes to enable yourself to speak American English more clearly.
Practice on the go
Whether you are using a desktop, laptop or iPad, with your Internet-connected device you can practice your pronunciation wherever and whenever you want. In addition to iPads, you can use SAUNDZ on any Windows, Mac or Linux computer that has a browser. SAUNDZ prefers Chrome, but works in IE, Edge, Firefox, Opera or Safari.
Complete SAUNDZ curriculum (approximately 40+/- hours) and if you are unsatisfied in any way we will fully refund your purchase price. No questions asked.
