• Pronunciation Power 2 (Intermediate/Advanced)
"Pronunciation Power is the only pronunciation
software in our Macintosh based language labs at this
time. The interface is intuitive enough to follow without
reference to any manual or other instructions; a prerequisite
for programs in our labs. Simple access to playing native
models, recording student production, and comparing
the two make this program an effective tool for learning
instead of an obstacle, as more complicated programs
sometimes prove to be. The variety of minimal pair discrimination
exercises for all 52 phonemes presented provides plenty
of instruction, practice, and reinforcement for students
looking to improve their listening comprehension and

"I would like to congratulate you and your
design team; Pronunciation Power is an excellent teaching
tool. It is also the program of choice by most of our
students in our English Language Institute because of
its ease of use, logical sequencing, variety and overall
capacity of the program.
We look forward to receiving your
future products and ongoing updates. "

"Pronunciation Power is truly one of the best and
most powerful pieces of software for students to improve
their pronunciation of the English language. Compatible
for both the Macintosh and Windows operating systems,
students can spend hours improving their pronunciation
as well as listening skills. And, most importantly,
it's very interactive and easy to use! I can highly
recommend this excellent product."

"Pronunciation Power has built in steps to developing
fluency, beginning with listening exercises which concentrate
on receptive skills and building up to recording pronunciation
exercises. Students can hear the sound replayed as often
as necessary, and record their voices for comparison.
A visual representation of the sound aids pronunciation.
A variety of activities reinforce the target sounds.
Instructors can listen to the recordings and provide
feedback. Higher level students can cope well with the
written descriptions of sounds. The sound analysis feature
is unique and could benefit students at all points on
the CLB spectrum. Rating: Excellent. "

"Pronunciation Power is an excellent tool for students
to learn the correct pronunciation of sounds as they
are used in the English language. My students are extremely
pleased with its easy to use and effective design. This
software stands out as the best in its class and nothing
compares in its price range. It is affordable, comprehensive
and gives hours upon hours of solid practice. this products
stands alone with its numerous lessons, exercises and
visual feedback. the speech analysis lets learners see
where they're going wrong, even if they can't hear it.
Pronunciation Power is an outstanding piece of educational
software, I'd recommend it for any second language learner."
