(How to) Pronounce - ask Siri how to pronounce words

When learning English, students and teachers often focus on grammar and vocabulary while pronunciation is equally, if not more, important for comprehension. Incorrect pronunciation of a word can entirely confuse the other person and/or block communication.

(How to) Pronounce, released on 14th October 2013, is a simple app that allows learners to check the pronunciation of English words and phrases (with intonation) without the need to open the dictionary. Just type in an utterance, and the app will read it with Siri voice (American and British English included). You can also make a list of utterances you would like to memorize or review later. The app is universal and can be used on the iPhone and iPad for FREE.

One was its novel approach to improving productivity in education along with a unique design interface. The other was that PaperHelper was the brainchild of two teenagers, Cameron Oelsen and Antony Basta, who had formed RumbleApps in 2010. PaperHelper was actually not their first appthat was QuikSocial (free), which gives users the chance to access multiple sources of entertainment and news in one seamless stream.

5 Apps To Help You Learn Spanish

For our family vacation next year, we've decided to take a trip to Costa Rica. I know it's still 10 months away, but I'm already dreaming of gorgeous beaches and zip lining through the jungles.

The problem is, most of our vacations have been to English-speaking destinations. So I've decided to learn Spanish.

Besides a one-year course in high school (which was a long time ago) and words I've picked up here and there by living in the Southwestern United States, I am not even close to communicating with someone whose only language is Spanish.



Boundless Textbooks: iPhone App for On-the-Go Studying

image

Boundless Textbooks (free, $19.99 for in-app upgrade) is an app designed to help college students save money on textbooks and study on the go. Boundless covers more than 20 subjects, including biology, business, chemistry, physics, and sociology. Introductory textbooks are free, while full-course books are $19.99 each. Boundless is something I could have used in college when I spent hundreds of dollars on books every year.

The book I checked out was a psychology textbook, Discovering Psychology: The Science of Mind. I always find it a little difficult to read things on my iPhone because of the small screen, but the words were easy to see and nicely formatted.
